Central Kentucky Landfill Odor Mitigation Process
We are aware that some nearby residents have expressed concern about odor emanating from the landfill. We are working quickly to address these concerns and, weather permitting, hope to complete our $1.5 million odor mitigation process by the end of March 2019.
The current odor issue is a direct result of our landfill nearing its design capacity. In 2012, we prepared expansion plans that would have negated any odor issues and ensured the safe and reliable operation of the landfill for the next 20 years. Unfortunately, our plans for responsible expansion have been repeatedly denied by local government leaving us where we are today.
Despite these costly setbacks, we remain committed to being a good neighbor for our fellow Scott County residents and are drilling new wells to address the situation as quickly as possible.
