Warren County Landfill

Warren County, NJ: (Mar-30-07) The State Department of Environmental Protection filed a lawsuit against the Warren County landfill over noxious odors that plagued neighboring communities in recent years. The administrative consent order between the Pollution Control Financing Authority and DEP covers 18 violations related to flare malfunctions and odor emissions. The lawsuit alleged the landfill polluted the air by emitting rotten egg like odors. The Warren County Landfill recently paid a $100,000 fine to settle charges, although not admitting fault or liability. The settlement agreement also requires landfill officials to install a sulfur control system and discontinue the use of Sheetrock as a daily landfill cover, which was linked to the sulfur odors.
