Stop stench from landfill

August 19, 2012

To the editor:

I reside in Carroll County in Harlem Springs. I am 6 miles north of Amsterdam. On Aug. 7 and Aug. 9, around 8 a.m., I walked out my door and the first thing that hit me in the face was that rotten smell of the Apex Landfill in Jefferson County.

The stench was not as strong as if you were in the Amsterdam area; however, it could be detected. I do not understand why anyone should smell this out-of-state garbage in Carroll County. It is bad enough I have family and friends who reside on Springfield Township Road 267 and in the area that have to smell this rotten egg, onion and potato stench, but for it to linger over into Carroll County in the Harlem Springs area is absurd.
