The Old Bethpage landfill, covering approximately 65 acres, is located in Old Bethpage, Town of Oyster Bay, Nassau Country, New York. Two public drinking water wells, a residential community, an industrial park, and a state park, exist within the site's general vicinity. Beginning in 1958, the Town of Oyster Bay operated the landfill as a municipal landfill. In addition to accepting municipal wastes and garbage, local industrial wastes were disposed of on the landfill during the late 1960s and early 1970s. A system designed to collect, store, treat, and dispose of leachate has been operating at the site since 1983. There are three remedial actions currently underway at the site. They include: leachate collection, methane gas collection, and landfill capping. The primary contaminants of concern affecting ground water include: VOCs, TCE, benzene, toluene, inorganics, chromium, and lead. Air is contaminated with methane gas and VOCs.
