If you have to rub up against it, you'll have fewer lookers and then probably a commensurate drop in price. By what percentage, I couldn't say. Tinton Falls is shaped like NJ. The landfill is in the southern most section of town. I, myself, live on Hope Road between W. Park and Industrial Way, the southern end of town, and I'm not aware of the landfill unless I come home late at night and drive directly outside the facility, and smell that burning plastic smell. Probably being 1/2 mile to a mile away by the way the crow flies, there is NO day to day evidence of the existence of the facility.
On the other hand, I know a Colts Neck broker who dismissed Tinton Falls out-of-hand because of the existence of this facility within its boundaries (and backing the Naval facility).
Also. There are Wayside, Ocean Twp (I"m Wayside, Tinton Falls) residents who are actually in much closer proximity to the facility than I.
I don't know if you're coming or going, but I hope this helps.
