Hackensack Meadowlands

A fascinating combination of major urban building projects, redevelopment and wetlands protection

A major wetlands complex and former home of primary NJ landfills, the Hackensack Meadowlands cover 30 square miles with 8,400 acres of open space waterways and wetlands in 14 municipalities in Hudson and Bergen counties. Under state legislation, the NJ Meadowlands Commission has been addressing the area’s environmental protection, economic development and solid waste management since 1969.
