The 10-acre Rogers Road Municipal Landfill site is an inactive landfill in a residential and agricultural area in Pulaski County, outside the city limits of Jacksonville, Arkansas. From 1953 until 1974, approximately one half of the site was used intermittently as a municipal waste disposal facility. Specific waste types and quantities are unknown. In addition, chemical waste materials probably originating from the nearby Vertac Chemical Corporation, including herbicides and associated dioxin impurities, have been disposed of at the site. Vertac Chemical Corporation wastes were also disposed of at the Jacksonville Municipal Landfill Superfund site, which is 1/2 mile east of the site. To achieve economies of scale, the two sites will be remediated concurrently, including excavating highly contaminated wastes and soil, and transporting these to Vertac for final treatment and disposition. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and debris are organics including dioxin/furan (2,3,7,8-TCDD), the pesticide dieldrin, and herbicide compounds (2,4,5-T, 2,4-D, and 2,4,5-TP).
