New SWANA Report Presents Guidance on Landfill Odor Control
SWANA’s Applied Research Foundation’s report provides solid waste managers with up-to-date information and guidance on materials and strategies that can be used to control offensive odors emanating from the working face of landfills.
Silver Spring, MD – Landfills are one of the major sources of nuisance odors in their host communities and can cause vociferous complaints from residents living near the facilities. Sources of landfill odors are not only landfilled
waste itself but can include other facilities on the landfill site such as leachate, stormwater ponds, and landfill gas condensate tanks.
The SWANA Applied Research Foundation (ARF) has issued an important new report that provides
solid waste managers with up-to-date information and guidance on materials and strategies that can be used to control offensive odors emanating from the working face of landfills.
“We are proud to be able to provide this report that addresses such an important and timely topic for SWANA ARF subscribers,” said Jeremy O’Brien, SWANA’s Director of Applied Research. “SWANA would like to recognize and
thank the organizations that comprise the ARF’s Disposal Group Subscribers that identified and voted on this topic as well as supported and assisted in the research.”
The full report, Landfill Odor Control with Alternative Daily Covers, is currently only available to SWANA ARF subscribers. SWANA members receive free access to the report one year after publication.
