To the Editor:
I reside in Carroll County in Harlem Springs. I am six miles north of the village of Amsterdam. On Aug. 7 and once again Aug.9 at around 8 a.m., I walked out my door. The first thing that hit me was the rotten egg, onion and potato smell of the Apex Landfill. The stench was not as strong as it would be if you were in the Amsterdam area, but it could be detected as to what it was.
I do not understand whyy anyone should smell this out-of-state garbage in Carroll County. It is bad enough to have family and friends who resident on Springfield Twp. Rd. 267 and in the area who have to smell this stuff daily, but for it to linger into Carroll County in the Harlem Springs area is absurd.
