Birding the Sussex County Landfill in Lafayette, NJ
The landfill is located on Route 94 just north of the intersection with Route 15.
Enter the landfill from Route 94.
Bear left then left again to the Administration building.
Sign in with the receptionist on the second floor. And sign out again when you leave.
She will explain how you drive up to the blue water tower where you can park.
On the rise just before the tower you can scope the gulls on the rooftops.
They are just starting to put garbage in the new section at the
bottom and the gulls congregate on the slope of
the old landfill right out in front of this spot.
