Superfund Site Profile

The Crown Vantage Landfill site is a 10-acre inactive former landfill in Alexandria Township, New Jersey. The landfill has an estimated 1,500 feet of frontage directly on the eastern shore of the Delaware River The nearby former Curtis Specialty Papers mill as well as by other Riegel Paper Company facilities disposed of wastes at the landfill from the late 1930s through the early 1970s. These paper mill-related wastes included flyash from coal burning; drums containing pressroom wastes such as varnish, shellac, methyl ethyl ketone, inks, and dyes; as well as paper fiber sludge and rolls of aluminum foil-laminated paper. The landfill may also have accepted flood-damaged items from the local community, including appliances and furniture, following record flooding of the Delaware River in 1955.
