West Lebanon tries to manage landfill smell

Posted: Updated:

West Lebanon is trying to manage a stinky situation.

The Valley News reports the landfill built three temporary flare devices to burn off the gases that were creating the smell. The smell was coming from decomposing waste.

The Solid Waste manager told the newspaper he hopes the smell will be gone by winter.

The permanent flare will cost $800,000, but the manager is confident the cost will pay off.
