WWBT NBC12 in Richmond, Virginia reports that a meeting regarding the expansion of the Shoosmith landfill in Chesterfield County set for Tuesday night is being met with opposition from some people who live near-by, who want the current smell contained before anything new is added.
The article further reports that in the last six years, the Department of Environmental Quality’s received more than 240 complaints from area neighborhoods like arbor landing. Phrases like “putrid rotting garbage” and “pungent landfill stench stinks to high heaven” describe the number one problem residents have with Shoosmith but the odor has yet to spark a violation with the DEQ.
