Take Action to Ban Dirty Trucks

You can make a difference to protect NJ air quality and the many lives affected by the negative health impacts from dirty trucks.

There are 6,000 mid- and heavy-duty trucks that service Port Elizabeth, Newark and Bayonne that do not comply with emissions standards and are grandfathered in under old, less strict standards. These dirty trucks are wreaking havoc on our air quality, and harming the health of our children, our seniors and all area residents. This is putting everyone in our state at risk, but it’s placing disproportionate negative health effects on communities of color and low socio-economic status



4/20/21 The NJ Department of Environmental Protection  issued public notice to announce the Advanced Clean Trucks Program and Fleet Reporting Requirements: "Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing new Air Pollution Control rules at N.J.A.C. 7:27-31 and 33 and amendments to N.J.A.C. 7:27A-3.10."
