Sick of the smell

What the hell is that smell that has been coming from the land fill for the past two years??? I have lived in my house for 22 years and only started smelling it about two years ago. Now I live about 200 yards from the Penfield town line, so it is not like I am close to the dump. Just about every night this summer I had to close my windows the toxic smell was so bad! And just this past Monday night I was at Thomas Creek Ice rink and the smell was even in the building! And when I went outside I almost threw up due to the smell! What the hell is going on?? How can our local representatives allow this to happen? or are they all paid off to sniff their air the other way??? We have complained about it to both the town and High Acres, and the same BS story about putting in a new well and it will be fixed in two weeks. ITS BEEN TWO YEARS!! WHERE IS THE FIX??? I think it is time for a class action lawsuit against both the town and High Acres about this. Anyone else sick of the smell?

It's probably methane leaking out. The town can't do anything. Perinton is in Monroe County and the landfill is in Wayne County. You're best bet is to file a complaint with the EPA or NYDEC. If they get enough complaints they'll investigate. But count on the fact that your local politicians are all getting campaign money from Waste Management.

This is not true. The landfill falls under Perinton. Jim Smith has been working to have the landfill get higher. I live west of the landfill and never smell it, but then again the wind barely comes from the east in my direction.

How has the smell been in the past year, 2013? Thinking about a home in the eastern part of Perinton...
