Moretown landfill working to cut foul odor

Posted: Updated:
MORETOWN, Vt. -

The company that owns the Moretown landfill says it has installed a plastic cap and taken other steps to reduce the smell.

Advanced Disposal says they put in a 2-acre plastic sheet over part of the landfill and installed a new piping system, which the company says will reduce odors that neighbors have been complaining about.

These measures are part of the landfill operator's new plan they presented to a very skeptical audience two weeks ago in Moretown.

State regulators will decide in early March whether or not to shut the landfill down.
