Landfill sites of all kinds had been alleged to be linked to a diversity of health hazards and nuisance and operators often face an on-going battle with nearby residents, pressure groups and others opposed to their operation. In the US, matters are no different. But perhaps somewhat predictable, they are more extreme.
Ontario resident Jim Stenton is suing Clean Harbors’ industrial hazardous waste site in Ontario for $25,000 because of the facility’s terrible odor.
Stenton claims the odor made him nauseous, gave him headaches, made it hard to breathe, caused him to lose sleep, his eyes to water, made him suffer the discomfort of swollen testicles and even drove him from his home three times last year.
At least he has the balls to stand up in Court and talk about it!
