Step 1 Complete: Stop the dumping

Board Members of PAID met with Representative Josh Gottheimer, Senator Steve Oroho, and Assemblyman Hal Wirths on Friday February 22, 2019 at the Mixing Bowl in Vernon.

Thanks to everyone in the trenches who spent their precious time making countless phone calls, writing emails, digging around the internet, researching, etc. All of your efforts combined finally helped the DEP recognize that this is not just a municipal issue. This is a state issue.

While the suits filed on Friday by the Attorney General are good news, they mark the beginning of the next leg – remediation and removal.

Please don’t leave the group now. We still need you to stay aware, continue your research, and be prepared to take action again if needed.

Sincerely,

Board Members of PAID

Special Thank You to Eric Obernauer of the NJ Herald (we didn’t get a picture with him) and Michael Sol Warren of NJ Advance Media (pictured left with Andrew Pitsker).
