Odor Management Plan
Landfills smell. It is their nature. There are a variety of smells at a landfill but most often, the reputation of a landfill is that it stinks. Landfills offer a variety of odors; however, those aromas typically fall into two basic categories: the ‘fresh’ trash smell; or the landfill gas smell. Both varieties of odors offer distinct differences in the smells and require differing methods for managing them.

Odor Report App
This application provides a tool to report the presence or absence of odors, rank the intensity, and provide additional comments. A symbol is placed on the map at the location of the mobile device or computer reporting the odor. When a report is made, landfill weather station data is also recorded including temperature, wind speed/direction, precipitation, dew point barometric pressure, and relative humidity. Historical intensity ratings can be viewed for the previous 7 days.
