EPA Superfund Program: JIS LANDFILL, SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The Jones Industrial Services (JIS) Landfill site is located in South Brunswick Township, New Jersey. The 24-acre area includes a 7.8-acre landfill and a waste transfer operation. From 1956 to 1980, about 50,000 cubic yards of waste were disposed of at the landfill annually. JIS placed a cap over the northern half of the landfill in 1983. The southern half of the landfill was capped in 1985. Groundwater on site is contaminated with metals, pesticides and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are potentially harmful contaminants some of which can easily evaporate into the air. Following immediate actions to protect human health and the environment, construction of the site’s long-term remedy was completed in 2009. Ongoing activities include long-term operation and maintenance of the site’s groundwater treatment system, monitored natural attenuation and implementation of institutional controls
