Why are there odors coming from the landfill area?
The odor is the hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell) gas that has been generated through the interaction of moisture with a major component of sheetrock (gypsum). The landfill has accepted ground construction and demolition (c&d) waste from the Town of Hartford through a mutual project since the mid 1990's, where Hartford accepts c&d waste from the surrounding VT and NH towns, has it ground into small pieces and hauls it to the Lebanon Landfill for use as alternate daily cover on the incoming waste.
