Facing persistent and overwhelming odors from the Chiquita Canyon Landfill and Sunshine Canyon Landfill, California residents have raised alarms, leading to the South Coast Air Quality Management District issuing a directive for immediate action. Waste Connections, the site’s operator, is now mandated to enhance odor mitigation strategies, including the optimization of gas flares, regular reporting, expert consultations, and intensified monitoring. Community members, distressed by the invasive smell linked to dimethyl sulfide emissions from the landfill’s older sections, report severe disruptions to daily life and health concerns, such as headaches, nausea, asthma, and nosebleeds. Efforts to unify for a class action lawsuit are underway.
