Officials Over the Border Hope to Put an End to the Odor
Odor from landfill may be stinking up Attleboro.
What's the big stink? So, Attleboro makes it into the Washington Post and for what? Because the smell of the Johnston landfill may possibly have made it to the 'Boro.
In the ongoing work to address odor problems at the Central Landfill, Rhode Island state Department of Environmental Management Director Janet Coit issued a letter to Rhode Island Recource Recovery Corporation on Dec. 9 that outlines the agency's expectations for work being done by RIRRC.
In the letter, Coit wrote that a new "flare" for burning methane captured from the landfill was scheduled to be operational Monday, and that a review of the ongoing work to address the odor problems is expected to be completed by today.
