Excerpt: Site Description The Sayreville Landfill is an inactive municipal landfill covering approximately 30 acres in a moderately industrialized area of Middlesex County. The site was one of a number of disposal operations located along the tidal South River. The Borough of Sayreville owned and operated the site as a municipal landfill beginning in 1970. It was licensed to receive municipal waste and light industrial waste; however, hazardous waste was allegedly disposed of during operations, and after closure in 1977. Part of the site is in a wetland adjacent to the South River. Approximately 67,000 people live within a 3-mile radius of the site; the closest residence is located ® mile away. Because of the tidal influence and the infusion of salt water, private wells in the area are not used. The Sayreville and Perth Amboy well fields are located within three miles of the site. There are other municipal wells in the vicinity which are tested regularly.
