Group Launches Web Reporting Tool For Landfill Complaints

Jun 20, 2019

A citizens group concerned about odors emanating from a landfill across the Hudson River from Albany has launched an online tool to log complaints.

A group called the Rensselaer Environmental Coalition has launched a new complaint reporting website called “ItStinks!.”

The site is set up to log complaints associated with the Dunn Landfill and forward them to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Earlier this year, DEC ordered the operators of the landfill to improve operations and address odors. DEC is monitoring for hydrogen sulfide emissions.

Nearby residents have complained of dust, odors, noise, and increased truck traffic near the landfill.
