Stop 2 million tons of toxic waste from being dumped on the Rahway River!

    1. Başlatan

      Edison Wetlands Association

A well-heeled developer is proposing to bring millions of tons of highly contaminated soil to a site directly along the Rahway River and adjacent to the Arthur Kill. In fact, they plan to dump more than 2 million tons of more heavily contaminated waste on top of environmentally sensitive area along the Rahway River. After empty promises of a project that would restore this environmentally sensitive area, their application will turn the Rahway River and Arthur Kill into a giant toxic dumping ground and label it as a "Soil Class B Recycling" facility. Their permit applications are full of misleading data, misapplied permits, and environmental risks for central New Jersey residents and the environment. Meanwhile, the developers will be making tens of millions of dollars in profit. Similar projects in South Jersey have turned into incredibly troubling environmental disasters leading to violations, false engineering, and destruction of sensitive wetland areas. These projects are a waste of taxpayers’ money and externalize the risk to you and I while making this relatively unknown company ultra-wealthy. They appear to be politically strong-arming the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) by hiring politically connected law firms in order to get their plans and applications approved without stipulations.

 

Please sign the petition below and send a message that our estuaries are no longer toxic waste landfills. Stop these polluters from further destroying our waterways and ecosystems that are finally starting to rebound from the past abuse during the industrial revolution. Tell NJDEP to reject Soil Safe's permit applications for a so called “remediation”.

      Because I live in Rahway by the river, and already believe something is secretly going on, from what I've seen.

      Toxic waste affects everyone, no matter where you live. Although the dumping is not close to my home, it still affects the various ecosystems in South Jersey and the environment. My children and many other people will somehow receive food from various rivers, streams that have contaminated waste. It is our responsibility to care for the world we live in.
