Keywords: Tags  automobile recycler, LKQ, expansion, Chesapeake Planning Commission, scrap, Lisa Gordon

PITTSBURGH — LKQ Corp. plans to expand its Chesapeake, Va., facility so it can move some of its outdoor operations indoors.

The Chicago-based automobile recycler and national dismantling chain has been approved to increase the size of the building at its 10-acre site to 84,000 square feet from 20,000 square feet, according to the Chesapeake Planning Commission.

The commission approved the request, but requires all vehicles to be stored inside the building or within a fence, vehicles to be drained upon arrival at the yard and chemicals to be kept on hand to clean up oil and automotive spills.
