EPA Superfund Program: BRICK TOWNSHIP LANDFILL, BRICK TOWNSHIP, NJ

Superfund Site Profile

The Brick Township Landfill site is located in Brick Township, New Jersey. The Brick Township Landfill operated for more than 30 years. It accepted sewage, septic tank waste, solids, bulk liquids and other wastes. Chemical wastes were reportedly disposed of at the 42-acre area in 1971. The landfill was privately owned until 1973, when Brick Township acquired it. The township operated the facility until its closure in 1979. After the landfill’s closure, Brick Township covered the area with two feet of clean soil. The township later removed drums and storage tanks, filled and vented three waste pits, and fenced off the landfill. By2013, the site was cleared and an impermeable cap was placed over the waste areas on the landfill property. . Groundwater monitoring is ongoing.
