The landfill smell…. an update

People keep asking us for updates on the landfill smell and the Environment Agency’s investigation into it.

Complaints about the smell have reduced a lot  now that Biffa has covered the part of the site where they failed to install gas collection pipes before.

We are pressing the Environment Agency to release the results of their formal investigation into the smell incident. This is “still being considered” by their Legal Services team.

Meanwhile, we have been working with residents investigating the Soil Treatment Facility which is located on the landfill site but run by a different company, Biogenie.

Following our investigations, Biogenie has released new information to the Environment Agency, who have required them to do some additional air pollution monitoring. We’re pressing for that to be public too.

We will post updates as soon as we have any further information to share.

Please do continue to report smells from the site to the Environment Agency on  0800 807060
