Informational Meeting for Community on Recent Odor Complaints From Sunshine Canyon Landfill...
As you know, I have been at the forefront of the fight to end L.A.'s dependency on landfills for many years. The primitive practice of digging a hole and dumping our trash into it harms the environment, public health and our community.
We recently have received a number of complaints from residents about foul odors coming from Sunshine Canyon Landfill in Granada Hills. The City has no jurisdiction over problems with foul odors from the landfill. However, we have been in contact with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and discussed the need to investigate the causes of the foul odors. SCAQMD acted immediatey and responsibly by scheduling a public meeting to offer information and take questions from the community. The meeting is Thursday, Dec. 17 in Granada Hills.
Part of my fight against landfills has been to put protections in place for the people living in the surrounding community. We now have a daily monitor at Sunshine Canyon Landfill (the Local Enforcement Agency or LEA) to ensure the strictest levels of regulatory compliance.
