Pennsylvania's Valley News reports on the resolution of a landfill odor issue that had been affecting the town of West Lebanon.
The air is sweeter along the Route 12A corridor in West Lebanon now that the landfill has a fully functioning flare to burn off most of the foul smells previously found there.
The flare project also has enabled city officials to begin tracking the amount of natural gas the 30-acre landfill produces in hopes of converting it to energy in the future.
On a warm day this week, Jennifer Johnson, co-owner of Ice Cream Fore-U on Route 12A just north of the landfill, said the formerly familiar smell of rotten eggs associated with landfill gases has been much diminished this year.
