Arbor Hills Landfill Information

  • Arbor Hills Landfill SceneryThe landfill has been regularly inspected by the MDEQ since it opened.  In January 2016, MDEQ began receiving odor complaints from residents living near the Arbor Hills Landfill (Landfill). MDEQ immediately engaged with the Landfill’s operators to address these odor concerns. Fugitive emissions of landfill gas were found to be the source of the odors. Arbor Hills Landfill took immediate and aggressive action to correct these issues.  The MDEQ and US EPA conducted investigations of the landfill and their operations.  Based on these investigations, MDEQ and US EPA issued Clean Air Act violations to the landfill for failures in the gas collection and control system. MDEQ, Wayne County, contracted consultants, and landfill staff continue to conduct regular inspections and odor patrols in and around the landfill and the surrounding community.
