Sanitary Landfill Facility Closure and Contingency Fund

The Legislature established the Sanitary Landfill Facility Closure and Contingency Fund (“the SLF Fund”) when it enacted the Sanitary Landfill Facility Closure and Contingency Fund Act, N.J.S.A. 13:1E-100 et seq., (“the SLF Act”) in 1981. The purpose of the SLF Fund is to provide compensation for damages resulting from the improper operation or closure of sanitary landfill facilities. The fund is “strictly liable for all direct and indirect damages, no matter by whom sustained, proximately resulting from the operations or closure of any sanitary landfill” (See, N.J.S.A. 13:1E-106a.).  Historically, the SLF Fund has paid claims predominately to individual homeowners impacted by improperly operated and closed landfill facilities after the homeowners have exhausted all other reasonably available sources for compensation.

Claims may be presented to the Department in accordance with the Processing of Damage Claims Pursuant to the Sanitary Landfill Facility Closure and Contingency Fund Act (“Landfill Claims Rules”), N.J.A.C. 7:1I.
