After a four-year legal fight - and decades of unregulated garbage storing - the New York Susquehanna & Western Railway and operators of the waste transfer stations alongside a two-mile stretch of railroad in North Bergen have agreed to follow state and local environmental and health regulations governing solid waste, settling a legal dispute with the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission.

will remain active.
One other note was NYS&W will refund $1m to the town of North Bergen for overcharging them on a sewer pipe easement.
