Summary:
In the 1970’s and 1980’s the solid waste disposal problem in New Jersey slowly grew to crisis proportions.  Solid waste
regulations were developed and the NJDOT was mandated to develop uses for recycled waste materials.  This paper
describes the administrative steps taken to implement this program in NJDOT and highlights some of our successes.
