Join with people from across the state to ban fracking waste dumping in New Jersey!
Fracking waste containing radioactive elements, heavy metals, and known carcinogens has already come to New Jersey, threatening our drinking water, our environment and public health. The legislature acted to ban fracking waste dumping, but Governor Christie vetoed that bill, and the legislature must act again in the new legislative session. Geological surveys show large shale deposits under portions of Central and North Jersey. Fracking waste produced here in our own state will force millions more gallons of toxic waste on our communities.
