Landfill from the Sky - My9 New Jersey

Landfill from the Sky

Posted: Updated:
Roxbury, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Updates from Fenimore Landfill continue to be a problem for the locals in Roxbury, New Jersey.

Residents continue to communicate and ask for help from the governor via twitter and Facebook which also include direct tweets to Christie.

However, new pictures have surfaced from the sky that show an above land aerial view of the landfill which shows the comparison of what this area was like before and after the DEP took over. Now this problem can be seen through a whole new perspective.

Before 2010, the landfill was capped. The pictures show this area being acres of a lush green land which included a huge park, homes and was used for hiking trails as well as camp sites. After 30 years of the landfill being capped, it was then reopened and that’s when things changed for the worse.

The DEP decided that the landfill needed to be closed down, again, and done properly under EPA standards. The landfill was then sold to Rich Bernardi, who reopened it with the intentions of properly closing it and putting solar panel fields on top the land to help with electricity.

One of the pictures from Route 46 West in Mine Hill, New Jersey show a temporary shell covering which was put down by the DEP to try and capture the smell.

Michael Drewniak, Governor Christie’s Press Secretary says that Christie is hands on with this issue even if he is not seen at meeting held by the town. Roxbury residents however aren’t sure that is the case since this issue has continued to cause for the neighborhood.

At this time, residents of Roxbury remain unhappy with the DEP and are still trying to get answers from the governor.
