Hearing happening on plans to clean up compost site
WINTON HILLS, Ohio (Angenette Levy) -- Rotting food scraps and yard waste, 80,000 tons of it, probably wouldn't smell good on a hot summer day.
That is what is sitting at a now-closed composting company. Neighbors said the stink is often unbearable. There was a plan to clean up the site but it could get worse before it gets better.
The smell that neighbors have complained about will get worse before it gets better as the city cleans up the site. The composting site consists of piles of dirt; some it rotting vegetable scraps.
The company Cincy Compost operated at the site until February. That was when the city locked out the company. An environmental compliance officer said they will clean up the site by allowing the composting to start again.
Diana Christy from Environmental Compliance Manager said, "We will be processing the compost on-site, determining process restarted."
A public hearing will start at 6p.m. July 22, 2014, at the Elmwood Place Town Hall on Vine Street.
