MAPLEWOOD, NJ – (TAPinto Berkeley Heights) – May 14, 2019 – More than a century ago, Burnett Avenue was a much quieter place than it is now.
There was more open space. Where Woolley Home Solutions is located, there were coal silos and railroad tracks for the Rahway Line.
Then came 1924. That’s the year the Woolley family came to town from New York and built Woolley’s Home Service, a plumbing, cooling, heating and biofuel business. The land was a coal yard that went bankrupt with a farmhouse that was once located on the property.
"While a number of fleets in New Jersey, including the Department of Transportation, have used biodiesel blends for many years, this pump opening marks the first time biodiesel will be sold directly to consumers in the state. We commend Woolley...Joe Jobe CEO (National Biodiesel Board)
