In January, the DEP assessed a $20,000 fine against the now-closed County Landfill in Farmington Township, Pennsylvania for not controlling off-site odors and incompletely documenting and investigating the odor complaints, according to the Daily Update. Further, they were fined for leachate spills in July and August, 2008 when workers dismantled landfill equipment.
This comes on top of a $225,149 fine in October, 2008 for exceeding the state's pollution limits. According to the Daily Update the landfill has been accumulating violations and fines since 2004.
