We previously reported that Republic Services, the owner and operator of the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill, had announced that the noxious off-site landfill odors were going to get worse before they get better. The Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill is located next to the West Lake Landfill. KMOV is reporting that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources is putting out a bid request for a company to conduct additional testing, following more complaints about the persistent and foul odors. The DNR specifically wants tests done for chemical compounds that include Dioxins, Hydrogen Cyanide and Sulfur Dioxide.
We are closely watching this situation. I have represented over a thousand similarly situated people around the country in various odor nuisance and environmental litigation regarding landfills and I am located in St. Louis, Missouri.
