The Fostoria Review Times is reporting that at least a dozen odor complaints have been lodged by residents to the OEPA, prompting a visit. Solid Waste Inspector Susan Hardy visited the site on November 19 and found the complaints to be warranted. "Landfills smell — that’s a given. But, part of what they need to do is control odors,” said OEPA Media Coordinator Dina Pierce. The landfill has installed gas extraction systems to control the odors, but nearby residents, like Clay Wolph and Becky Bouillon, have complained that the odors have progressively gotten worse. We have previously blogged about this site.
