The owner of a Dayton landfill is “in complete agreement” with an Ohio EPA order to contain odors that have led to a lawsuit, a city ban, complaints from nearby jurisdictons and the county exploring other solid waste disposal sites.
The state agency cites regulatory violations involving the odor issues at the Stony Hollow Landfill and requires the Waste Management-owned facility to take six actions by late December.
“We have been actively engaged with Ohio EPA and are in complete agreement with this order,” according to a statement issued Thursday by Waste Management. “All of us at Stony Hollow Landfill and the company remain committed to resolving issues as quickly as possible.”
The South Gettysburg Avenue site has been the source of hundreds of odor complaints for several months. Most of those complaints have come from Moraine - where a resident has filed a class-action lawsuit. Others include Jefferson Twp., Kettering, Miamisburg and West Carrollton.
The city of Dayton has ordered the landfill to stop discharging waste into its sewer system and Montgomery County has been asked to halt sending solid waste there.
