As reported by the Pacific Daily News, partially treated human waste is a contributing factor to the odors plaguing residents in Inarajan, Guam. Residents started complaining about noxious odors not long after the landfill opened on September 1, 2011. Historically, residents complained for years about the nearby Ordot dump, which was closed by order of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the day before the Layon landfill opened. The Pacific News Center is also reporting about the landfill odor nuisance.
