Chesterfield County, Virginia's Shoosmith Landfill case deferred to July 20

Village News Online reports that the Planning Commission voted last week to defer a request from Shoosmith Bros. Inc. The company is seeking changes for acceptance of out-of-state trash in the new section of the landfill, landfill and quarrying operations in the quarry at the same time and the addition of more waste to an area of the landfill that has been capped. In its report on the case, the planning staff recommended approval of the request because "the proposed amendments should have no greater impact on the area than the approved uses as currently conditioned."

The article continues that Brennan Keene, an attorney representing the landfill, stated there has been discussion about odor management and control. Tim Vermaaten, of the Arbor Landing Homeowners Association, said the odor was never a problem when the former owners ran the landfill and stated "We don't feel like anything's being done to mitigate the odor."
