News 4 is reporting that Republic Services, the owner and operator of the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill is claiming that working on a long term fix for the odors by installing gas collection wells could mean the odors would get worse before they get better. What they don't say is that there are engineering techniques that will keep the odors from going off-site, even during the installation of the gas collection wells. Residents have been complaining about the odors from the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill, located next to the West Lake Landfill for quite some time. We previously reported that residents have the right to enjoy their homes without having to experience noxious odors from a landfill.
