New Law - Requires Registration and Licensing for Soil and Fill Recycling Services

On January 21, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy signed S-1683/A-4267 which expands New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (“NJDEP”) oversight of business concerns that engage in, or provide, soil and fill recycling services. A business concern includes any corporation, association, firm, partnership, sole proprietorship, trust, limited liability company, or other commercial organization providing services for the collection, transportation, processing, brokering, storage, purchase, sale, or disposition of soil and fill recyclable materials. More information can be found here.

In Memoriam

On behalf of the Board of Directors of AHMP-NJ, I am deeply saddened to inform you of the passing of our fellow AHMP-NJ member Al Arnofsky. Al suffered a heart attack on Friday, January 3, and passed away early Saturday morning.

Al was one of the earliest professionals to earn the CHMM in 1988. He was the president of Pleasant Hill Consultants, having previously completed a BE from Cooper Union and an MS from Carnegie Mellon University in Chemical Engineering. He helped to establish the NJ chapter of ACHMM (now AHMP-NJ), was instrumental in the planning & hosting of the 1997 ACHMM National Conference in Atlantic City, was a Fellow of the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Additionally, Al was a Past President, unofficial historian, and a guiding light of AHMP-NJ.

Al also was committed to giving back to the community. He worked with the New Jersey Youth Corp’s Brownfield Training Program assisting in the training of young people in underserved communities.

Personally, Al was my instructor when I took the EHMM review class in 1990. His depth of knowledge and ability to blend experience with facts helped me to earn my CHMM. Throughout my three year tenure as AHMP-NJ President, Al freely offered his opinions (whether requested or not), presented historical background information, located presenters for the AHMP meetings, and assisted in bringing new members to the Board of Directors.

If you would like to send a sympathy card or note to the family, the address is:

Mrs. Barbara Arnofsky

34 Pleasant Hill Road

Succasunna, NJ 07876

Donations may be made in memoriam of Albert Arnofsky to:

Al will be missed.

What are Hazardous Materials?

According to the IHMM, a hazardous material is any item or agent (biological, chemical, physical) which has the potential to cause harm to humans, animals, or the environment, either by itself or through interaction with other factors.

What is a “Hazardous Materials Professional”

Hazardous materials professionals are responsible for and properly qualified to manage such materials. This includes managing and/or advising other managers on such items at any point in their life-cycle, from process planning and development of new products; through manufacture, distribution and use; to disposal, cleanup and remediation.

Hazmat Professionals work for a variety of employers and in many different roles. Some of us work for governmental agencies, setting and enforcing standards. Some work for businesses, managing and assuring compliance, worker safety and health, environmental protection, hazmat security and sustainability in our particular operations. Some of us work in advocacy and education.

We are chemists, geologists, physicists, and engineers. We're managers, policy specialists, inspectors and investigators, emergency responders, and more.

Regardless of our employment or expertise, we share the common goal of keeping people and our planet safe and healthy; for current generations as well as those yet to come.

If you think this describes you, please join us!
