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.
What can YOU do?

After Sandy slammed into New Jersey’s coast in October, 2012, the state was left with the gargantuan task of collecting and disposing of nearly nine million cubic yards of debris, enough to fill a football stadium almost a mile high, according to FEMA. As soggy carpets and damaged appliances piled up on people’s curbs, landfills and incinerators around the state were granted special, emergency permits to operate longer hours and more days a week to process all the waste.
Allegations are flying as public acrimony mounts over a botched attempt to place a solar farm atop an abandoned landfill in New Jersey.
At the center of the controversy is a New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection report that has not yet been made public. Critics allege that NJDEP has delayed its release because the document may show that materials from the landfill impaired water quality in local streams. The agency contends that when the report comes out next month, it will not show any significant and lasting damage to the watershed from the landfill.
The Fenimore Landfill disaster began and continues to plague the residents of Roxbury Township as a result of Governor Christie and the agencies that report to him. The NJDEP does whatever they want without regard to the people. The NJDOH doesn't do a thing.
