What is in
Using this database you can find basic information regarding each known or suspected landfill in New Jersey, such as the Landfill Name, Street Address, Municipality, County, and Block & Lot #’s, if available. Other available data fields are defined below:
Solid Waste ID - This is a 5 digit alpha/numeric combination that was assigned to each solid waste facility by the Department. This was the original identifier used by the former Division of Solid Waste Management. It consists of the two digit County Code and the two digit Municipality Code followed by a letter. The Department stopped issuing SW IDs in the early 1990’s.
New Solid Waste ID – This is a 10 digit number issued by the Department that replaced the original Solid Waste ID. It consists of the two digit County Code and the two digit Municipality Code followed by 6 numerical characters. The Department stopped issuing New SW IDs in 2003.
CSL ID (or Comprehensive Site List ID) – This is an ID previously assigned by the Department’s Site Remediation Program. A 12-digit alpha/numeric designation starting with "NJ" used as a unique site identifier. If a valid United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identification number had been assigned to the site from a federally mandated program such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA, a.k.a. known as Superfund) or the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Program, it is used as the identification number.
Solid Waste PI # (Preferred ID #) – This is a 6 digit number generated by the Department’s New Jersey Environmental Management System. It is the identification number currently used by the Department’s Solid & Hazardous Waste Management Program as a unique identifier for Solid Waste Facilities.
Owner/Operator Type – Identifies the type of owner/operator of the landfill:
Commercial/Sole Source – Identifies whether the operation of the landfill was for Commercial purposes (C) or for on-site or intra-company generated waste (S).

Properly Closed – Identifies whether or not a landfill has been verified as properly closed in accordance with the Solid Waste Regulations by the Department’s Solid & Hazardous Waste Management Program (True or False). Those landfills where all known waste has been removed have also been marked as properly closed.
Date Ceased Operating – The year that the landfill stopped receiving waste for disposal.
Acreage – The size of the landfill in acres.

Tips on Searching
In order to do a search you should enter something in at least one
of the following fields: Landfill Name, County, Solid Waste ID, New Solid Waste ID,
CSL Number or Municipality.
The searches are case insensitive. It doesn't matter if you type Main
Street, main street,
MAIN STREET or MaiN
STreet; the case is ignored and the results of your
search will be the same.
If you know that a Landfill Name, County, Solid Waste ID, New
Solid Waste ID, or CSL Number begins with a certain sequence of letters
(or numbers) then you can search the database by entering those
letters and clicking Begins With.
But, if, for example, you know that a company is located on Main Street,
but you don't know the street number then you can type Main
or Main St and click on
Contains the letters for
the street field. A "Contains the letters" search will find the sequence
of letters or numbers no matter where it is located.
You can display 10, 25, 100 or 600 records at time. If you specify
10 records to display and the search comes up with 11 records only
the first 10 will be shown. You would have to run the query again
and set the number of records to be displayed to 25 for the 11 records
to be displayed in this example.
If you dont find what youre looking for the first time,
change the search criteria and resubmit!
