I live in the east end and have noticed the smell several times.. even as far as Howley estates. We pay enough in municipal taxes that the smell is inexcusable.
@thescopeNL Still better than springtime in the Goulds. Liquified chicken manure, blech!
I pity those on the South side, but not the east end. Unlike the southsiders, you bought a house near a DUMP. These are the same people who would buy a house near a river and complain about water in their basement, call a public meeting over the smell from an established farm they build a McMansion next to, and call for action on “bear problems” after building in the woods.
You want to do something about the smell? Move away from the dump you bought a house next to.
The smell is a recent development since the development of the new dump site. Some of us have lived in the East End since long before this problem existed.
Ahhh…. the smell of a new dump! what the city should be spending money on is moving forward with a recycling and compost program. less garbage, less landfill, less need for a dump, less smell, happier environment and happier citizens.
