COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -
The debate over how to control
the odor emitted at Rumpke's Struble Road facility came to a head Tuesday night
at a public meeting in Colerain Township.
A lot of passionate arguments as the Ohio
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) heard public comments.
The EPA must approve a request made by
Rumpke to modify its permit and increase its odor neutralizing chemical, but
many residents are not only opposed to increasing its usage, they want it
"I don't want to be sick,"
demanded Jean Smith, a Colerain Township resident who lives near the site. "I
want my 30 pounds back, I want my life back, I want my teeth back that you took
from me. Are you willing to do that? Stand up and say so."
Concerned residents like Jean
Smith put their feelings on the record in hopes that the Ohio EPA will deny
Rumpke's request to increase its use of an odor neutralizing chemical.
"I personally think that the
smell of the Febreeze or whatever it is they're throwing into the air is just
as bad as the landfill," said resident John Kerr.
What residents want is a
solution, not a temporary fix, to the underground chemical reaction that is
causing a rise in land fill temperatures and odors.
"When I moved here that odor
wasn't here," said Dennis Richards. "Now it's here and it's here with a
vengeance. We can't give our home away."
But not all residents are upset.
Some see the value of Rumpke's services and think if this option is the best
right now, Rumpke should be awarded the modification to its permit.
"They try to fix the odor,
we complain," said Jo Rengering. "There are some people, there are some people
that won't be happy no matter what."
Rumpke says the chemical is plant
and vegetable based and non-toxic.
"The EPA has said this is
safe," Rengering added. "I believe it is. I do not believe that the Rumpke's
would have their family living and working near some place that was not
Sixteen people testified at
Monday's meeting and the public comment period is still open.
No decision was made the meeting,
but the Ohio EPA expects a decision to be made in the coming weeks.
