Lakewood Rabbi Gets More Time to Clear Illegal Landfills
A Lakewood Rabbi is given more time to remove what he claims are buried religious materials from illegal landfills in Lakewood, Jackson and Farmingdale.
According to the Asbury Park Press, Rabbi Chaim Abadi struck a new deal with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) before a State Superior Court Judge in Ocean County to prepare a new DEP approved site and cleanup items in Lakewood by October 29th and from Jackson by November 26th.
Abadi is also being allowed to place items that don’t fit in the new site into temporary trailers but all materials, buried and stored must be cleared by May 31st, 2013.
Abadi was originally given an April deadline to cleanup the sites but failed to comply. In a Lawsuit, the DEP says one of the burial sites was located near an active drinking water source.
