Dinner Meeting:  Odor Management at Solid Waste Facilities


  • Pat Sullivan, SCS Engineers
  • Danielle Lowther, Recology


The management of municipal solid waste has always had the potential to create odors.  Successful odor management is critical for any solid waste facility.  Our dinner meeting will cover the topic from the facility standpoint, focusing on implementation of an odor management program at the site level.  Topics that will be covered during the dinner meeting include:
  • Summary of Odor Regulations/Regulatory Background
  • Facility Odor Program (Hay Road Landfill and Jepson Prairie Organic facilities)
  • Case Studies, Major Odor Regulatory and Legal Cases
  • Demo of Nasal Ranger (odor monitoring device)
Our speakers include Pat Sullivan of SCS Engineers, who is a national expert on air quality issues for solid waste facilities, and Danielle Lowther of Recology, who manages environmental programs at the Hay Road Landfill/Jepson Prairie Organics facilities.  We promise a stimulating discussion of what's worked, what hasn't worked, and how best to manage odors during solid waste management operations please join us!
