    Apparently it is, (see the link below) however, I would look into local state rulings on this as well.  There are special precautions that developers must take if developing in areas that were previously used as landfill sites as there are obvious concerns – such as methane gas and sinking foundations so they have listed 3 ways of doing so:
    1. Excavate the landfill material
    2. Build on top of the landfill with cement slab structures
    3. Sink pilings down to the supporting bedrock or to a suffcient level to provide support
