increased stink from Hillside dump should be temporary

Have you noticed the Hillside dump emitting more stink than usual lately?

Suburban Life (Joe Sinopoli)
has what the company has told the village. And the village's representative on the issue, Joe Pisano, director of public works and building services, buys the explanation.

Pisano said 14 new gas wells have been installed in those quadrants that are expected to be connected to an active vacuum system no later than early next week....

As of this week, roughly the western third of the landfill is about 85 percent complete as far as filling and gas collection, and it’s now being prepared for the installation of a final membrane that will be capped by 3 feet of topsoil.

I was at a backyard barbecue yesterday with a contractor who described driving down to the bottom of the landfill to dump his construction waste decades ago.

He said it was 1,500 feet deep. And that he was allowed down because it hadn't rained recently. He described enormous machines for rolling over the dumped material and crushing and compressing it.

  • I noticed the company that owns the landfill and the contractors managing the stink had their names excluded from the article.
