Welcome to DumpPMUA.com

History of DumpPMUA.com

DumpPMUA.com was created in March 2009 by residents of Plainfield, NJ who were concerned about the accountability, transparency, customer service, and general practices of the Plainfield Municipal Utilities Authority (PMUA) management and Board of Commissioners. Our issues are not with the hardworking rank and file employees. Although some concern about PMUA's practices existed prior to this grassroots movement, the movement began to take shape when 1st quarter PMUA bills were mailed to residents.


We chose DumpPMUA.com because of its catchiness, and not necessarily to dismantle PMUA (unless management continues with non-competitive rates, excessive spending, and deceptive practices). The purpose of DumpPMUA.com is to keep Plainfield residents informed of past and present practices of PMUA. With the help of many residents, we have been able to gather PMUA's public records and post them to this website. The site will serve as a mechanism to effect positive change to PMUA and/or provide residents with information on more affordable, high quality service. Our goal is to make sure that PMUA is held accountable to the residents they serve!


History of PMUA

As published on the PMUA website:

The PMUA was created in 1995 to provide a stable and affordable solid waste operation and sanitary sewer service for the residents of Plainfield. Today the PMUA is both a service and regulatory agency managing the City’s sanitary sewer and solid waste utility services. Overseeing an integrated waste management plan, with a comprehensive menu of solid waste and recycling services, the PMUA maintains and operates the Rock Avenue Transfer Station as part of Plainfield’s Solid Waste Utility. The PMUA administers monitors and is responsible for developing, implementing and enforcing rules and regulations regarding the City’s compliance with environmental regulations. The authority operates and maintains 110 miles of sanitary sewer services lines, several sewage pumping stations and provides for proper collection and treatment of municipal waste water. A community leader in outreach programs to increase recycling, reduce litter and clean-up public areas, the PMUA works with other city agencies on projects to promote reinvestment of resident dollars back into the Plainfield Community.
