Concerned Parents tell Brookhaven, New York officials to close the Yaphank Landfill

The North Shore Sun reports that residents came to a town meeting held on March 29 and demanded that the landfill, which had been accepting "non-hazardous" sludge (also called bio-solid material), be closed. On March 24, students at an intermediate school had to be evacuated after noxious odors overtook the school. Last week the New York DEC ordered the landfill to stop accepting the sludge.

The article also mentions that tests were done that determined there were no hazardous materials. Certain gasses, such as hydrogen sulfide, can be detected at low amounts that will not read on many instruments, and will cause a nuisance.

While I do not represent anyone in New York, I do represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country in landfill litigation cases. To find out if The Simon Law Firm can help with a landfill litigation case, contact environmental lawyer Todd Hageman.
