Report Air Quality Problems to (800) CUT-SMOG

Some residents in Granada Hills have reported foul odors coming from the area around Sunshine Canyon Landfill.

In response, we contacted the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD), and they have sent an inspector to the landfill to investigate the odors and measure air quality.

Anyone who wants to report foul odors or other air-quality related problems can call the AQMD at (800) CUT-SMOG.

Sick of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill Odors???

We urge you to attend an important meeting Thursday evening.

Landfill Odor MeetingThursday, December 17, 2009 — 6:00 pm
Van Gogh Street Elementary School
17160 Van Gogh Street
Granada Hills, CA 91344

At the November 5, 2009 meeting of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill – Community Advisory Meeting, there was much discussion about the recent increase in odor events resulting from Sunshine Canyon Landfill operations and the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (AQMD) current and potential enforcement efforts in response to those complaints and documented public nuisance situations. At that meeting, the various corrective actions available to the AQMD that could be employed/imposed for purposes of resolving the odor problem resulting from landfill operations were discussed. One of the options was the possibility of the AQMD filing a petition for an Smelly faceOrder for Abatement with the AQMD Hearing Board in an attempt to bring the facility in to compliance with Rules and Regulations and the California Health and Safety Code, particularly as their compliance status relates to nuisance.

On November 17, 2009, the South Coast Air Quality Management District filed such a petition against Allied Waste Company, Inc., and Republic Services, Inc. dba Sunshine Canyon Landfill. The matter is scheduled to be heard and considered by the AQMD Hearing Board on the evening of Thursday, December 17, 2009, at 6:00 p.m. at Van Gogh Elementary School located at 17160 Van Gogh Street, Granada Hills, CA.

*** Please note that it was at AQMD’s request that this hearing be conducted in the community instead of at AQMD’s headquarters in Diamond Bar.
