To reduce odors at the site, the company said it removed 30 liquid treatment tanks. The removal will allow the company to start a pilot study on odor removal next week.

    Just more BS from Republic Services. The stink was worse than ever last night. As discusstingly horrible the sink is, what nobody in a position of authority seems to care about is the long term effect of smelling this everyday or every week for years.

    The stench was so bad last night/early this morning, (around midnight), that it woke us up from a sound sleep, because I had left a window open. So no, their “deadline” has not been met, only disguised by smelling horrible at night, when most of us are sleeping, and don’t notice.

    I live in Spanish Village and the smell was HORRIBLE last night. My eyes burned for over an hour! Maybe Fox2 should do a complete report and ask nearby residents if the stink is gone? I just pray the AG doesn’t just take their word for it and does something about this. This is NO WAY TO LIVE!!
