Redevelopment at the Site

The 26-acre Price Landfill Superfund site is located in the City of Pleasantville and Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. In 1971, the site began operating as Price Landfill and accepted industrial chemicals, sludge, oil, grease, septic tank wastes and sewer wastes. Landfill operations ended by 1976. EPA added the site to the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983. Cleanup included groundwater extraction and water quality monitoring. In 2009, the site received American Resource and Recovery Act (ARRA) funding, which helped fund construction of the site’s groundwater treatment facilities. Today, these facilities are fully operational. Workers installed a cap over the landfill area after cleanup ended. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) studied whether a renewable energy project would be viable on the landfill. The study showed that the site is a good candidate for a renewable energy project. EPA and site stakeholders will continue to consider the site’s potential for beneficial reuse.
