A unique approach to combating landfill odors in East Brunswick, New Jersey

The New Jersey Star-Ledger is reporting that the Middlesex County Landfill has taken a rather different approach. Instead of better maintaining the landfill by using sound engineering, they are spraying perfume, yes, perfume. "It has a pleasant showery smell," said the executive director of the Middlesex County Utilities Authority, which runs the landfill.

What I found interesting is that the only gas mentioned, methane, is typically odorless. At higher than toxic levels, it might have a sweet smell. Residents are describing the odors as "garbage." That could point to hydrogen sulfide, which typically smells like rotten eggs.

I currently represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country in various landfill and other environmental litigation cases. To find out if The Simon Law Firm can help with an environmental lawsuit, contact environmental lawyer Todd Hageman.
