Look! No Trailers! Abandoned Trailers No Longer on MDUSD Property

December 13, 2013 10:00 am · 13 comments


The abandoned trailers on the property of the old Glenbrook Middle School campus in Concord have been moved, finally!

We told you about the trailers last week, and were told by the MDUSD that the trailers previously belonged to a nearby church. The MDUSD said they alerted the police and did not give permission to anybody to store the dangerous trailers on their property.

Good to see they’ve been towed away. Thanks to Lee for the picture!

Nice to see they were towed away. Who towed them?

I saw some guys with a tow truck earlier in the week who were putting caution tape around the trailers, but I didn’t see any indication who hired them.

Maybe Sergio picked them up and took them to his yard in Bay Point?

The question is which board member will be the first one to claim credit for having them removed..

Who will be taking responsibility for the expense of the trailers be moved and disposed?

It should be the responsibility of the church. The fact that they were scammed does not exonerate them from being responsible for the removal. I can’t imagine that it would be the district’s responsibility to pay.

I would truly question he church on this issue. You hired “cowboy” to tow away the trailers. I am not 100% familiar with the laws of transportation, but I believe these trailers are over-sized loads that require heavy duty tow vehicles (not pickup trucks) and proper markings on the trailer/vehicle as such. They could also require permits from Concord PD to be moved on City of Concord streets. Seems to me someone was hoping they’d take the trailers and move them (to some side road and didn’t care what happened). Kind of like when you hire someone to clear out your garage and they say it will be $50….you know it’s not going to the dump but probably some empty lot like we’ve all seen pictures of before filled with junk.

with the price of metal where its at they probably had a $1000 in scrap.. they could have been hauled away for free from the right guy

Since he wanted them and was kind enough to volunteer to remove them.

@just me,

Yes, it’s just you. Those trailers don’t look oversized to me. Certainly not a permit load.

Wonder if someone woke up this morning a found a bunch of trailers dumped on their property! ! !

The “dangerous trailers” were Ranger trained following their ninja course at the trailer fu school of dangerosity.

Dangerous trailers. Only in california. . . .
