Fenimore Landfill neighbors welcome smell of Christmas

Residents of Roxbury, NJ may enjoy the smell of chestnuts roasting on an open fire this Christmas without the competing odor of garbage rotting in an uncapped landfill.

The state Department of Environmental Protection's work to squelch the stench that had residents gagging appears to be working, as NJTV News’ Briana Vannozzi reports  in the video above and in Capping Underway at Contaminated Fenimore Landfill

Meanwhile, the finger pointing as to who is responsible--the state (which allowed the formerly closed landfill to re-open) or landfill owner Richard Bernardi--apparently is heading toward the latest legal showdown. Bernardi claims that the Attorney General's office has launched an criminal investigation into his operations. Is NJ looking to run landfill owner out of bullets?
