Delaware Online is reporting that officials are beginning to recognize the need to take more serious action in response to odor complaints concerning the Wilmington Organic Recycling Center, a Wilmington recycling and compost facility. The facility recently received a misdemeanor criminal pollution citation and concern among the community is growing. Residents report that the noise and odors generated by the plant are bad, and that the odors are worse when it rains or the wind blows. They have formed a community group to seek relief. The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control issued a reform order in July of this year but the issues are ongoing.
