There is a proposal to create a construction and demolition transfer dump station in the Douglas Park neighborhood of Pleasantville, NJ in Atlantic County. It will accept up to 500 tons of debris a day. Demolition debris is currently handled at the huge 347-acre ACUA (Atlantic County Utilities Authority) campus. There is no need for this project. This facility does not meet the criteria of NJ’s new Environmental Justice Regulations.
