The Journal reports residents have joined forces with the Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority to have their concerns heard, stemming from a continuous odor nuisance from LCS Services’ North Mountain Sanitary Landfill in West Virginia. Although residents have been complaining of the odors for years, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection reports it has found no off-site odor problem. Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority Chairman Clint Hogbin has kept a detailed log of when the odors are present and believes the DEP inspectors have been unable to locate the odor because they are not working when the problems materialize – or the odors have ceased by time they arrive due to travel time. Hogbin said it is important to bring this issue to officials so they know these odors are real and can be “pungent,” leaving residents concerned for their health.
