The Daily News Journal is reporting that activists, including Statewide Organizing for Community eMpowerment (SOCM), Bring Urban Recycling to Nashville Today! (BURNT) and the Sierra Club Tennessee Chapter have been meeting with residents to encourage them to sway state regulators to stop the Republic owned landfill from polluting the air and water nearby. The odors have been so awful at residents' properties that resident Ron Trammell has complained of headaches and has witnessed a neighbor become ill from the stench.

While I currently do not represent anyone in Tennessee, I have represented more than 1,000 similarly situated people around the country in various odor nuisance and landfill litigation.
