Landfill on the wire

Someone put this link in a comment yesterday. I forgot to post it at the time, but it does illustrate how people outside MA are paying attention to our landfill.

The brief report is from a St. Louis firm of environmental attorneys.

“When the gypsum in wallboard rots, it releases hydrogen sulfide gas,” notes Todd Hageman, an attorney with The Simon Law Firm. “Landfills, like the Crow Lane Landfill, should be operated in a manner which sufficiently collects and treats the landfill leachate and gasses, otherwise gasses such as hydrogen sulfide may be released into the surrounding community.”

See? Simon knows ...
