The Camden Chronicle is reporting that residents met at a City Council meeting on December 13 to express their concerns about the ammonia smell coming from the Environmental Waste Solutions landfill. Residents have been complaining for months and have called the local police department, emergency management director and the Tennessee Environmental Conservation Office to complain of the strong smell of ammonia coming into their property and homes. One of the items permitted in the landfill is aluminum dross, which is believed to be the source of the odors. While the EPA does not recognize aluminum dross as toxic, the Department of Transportation does. Regardless of whether it is toxic or not, the fact is that a nuisance is caused when the odors are so strong that it reaches residential homes.
