The Walton Tribune is reporting that a sulfur smell, which is most likely hydrogen sulfide, coming from the Caruthers Mill Landfill has been irritating residents and prompting complaints. In November, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division issued a violation for the odors to the owners, Advanced Disposal of Jacksonville Florida. They were given 30 days to reduce the odors.

The landfill was approved, with opposition from residents, in mid-2008, and has been operating since March 2009.
