Passaic County offers free home radon test kits

Due to its prevalence throughout the state, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) recommends all homes get tested for radon.For more information on radon or to reserve one of the free test kits, contact Allessio at 973-225-3651.
