Hi Everyone,
Does anyone know where the old Tuckerton Dump is? I heard it is near the old speedway, but I can't find any more information about it's location. I was going to to go hiking/exploring back by the speedway this weekend and would like to explore the dump if it close.

Thanks!

The Blue Trail, starting at Freedom Fields County Park, will take you right through the old dump. It will be obvious when you are there. It is the group of parallel curved lines on the last map Boyd posted.

There’s nothing at the end of what was Dump road. Some empty woods mostly
Open the link from my post #4 above Mike and then activate a newer aerial such as 2015 and then the basic street map showing the road names. There appear to be definite remnants of the old landfill that are still very visible at the end of Dump Road.

Just days ago I walked down dump road and saw relatively nothing. There is some private land barricaded by lots of downed trees and brush. It’s possible the dump reMains on some of that private property, but I found no easy way to access and didn’t want to go on private property. I’m assuming this is private but I could be wrong
