Residents Near High Acres Landfill File Suit Against Waste Management

Residents of Fairport, Macedon and the surrounding areas are taking the operator of the High Acres landfill to federal court. 

The complaint against Waste Management of New York cites harm to the communities from persistent, noxious and offensive odors of garbage and landfill gas. The complaint by the group Fresh Air for the Eastside says the company has intentionally failed to maintain and operate the landfill gas collection system. 

The group wants the company to halt the intake of trash from New York City until the odors can be remediated.
