A convicted felon, a solar energy law, an overnight brownfield designation, a Highlands waiver, the NJDEP not following their own guidelines, the NJDOH and Governor Christie MIA, and that is just the tip of the iceberg!
The Fenimore Landfill, located in Roxbury Township, reopened in 2012 in order to close it properly. The 400,000+ cubic yards of new material dumped has caused health problems for thousands of people, contaminated the air, reduced property values, and eliminated the great quality of life that residents had enjoyed. Now it's time for YOU to get informed, involved, and inspired.

REACT, with donations made by residents of Roxbury, erected a billboard on Route 46, above Ridgline Motors today. The simple but powerful message tells people that now is the time to speak up and speak out or forever hold their breath. We hope they do for now is the time before the final closure plans for the Fenimore Landfill commences. Look for our next Fundraiser at the Barn on 3/19/14 where we will be raising funds for our next billboard. Thank you!!
Fenimore Landfill, like the Rahway River Landfill, was a “fill and cap” project using contaminated soil, construction and demolition screenings, and other types of fill. When capped with Processed Dredge Material (PDM), it was to create a “proper cap.” Fenimore Landfill was also designated for redevelopment as a solar farm (part of New Jersey’s efforts to convert landfills and brownfields to solar farms).
R.E.A.C.T. conducted it's own independent air testing results through NJDEP Certified labs. The results were surprising. Formaldehyde levels were over 100 times the NJDEP Benchmark. In addition, the following components were detected: acetone, dichlorodifluoromethane, ethanol, methylene chloride. All of these VOC's should NOT be present in a residential neighborhood.
