Tullytown is located in Burlington County in the U.S. state of New Jersey. There, the corporation Waste Management, Inc, (WM) runs the Tullytown landfill since the eighties. This is one of the 293 active landfill disposal sites that this company manages, but this one is special because this landfill receives several odour complaints from the community. The odour annoyance was so noticeable that the Waste Management had to agree to pay $2 million to settle a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of residents on both sides of the Delaware River who claimed that noxious odours lowered property values and affected their quality of life.
The Houston based corporation Waste Management, Inc (WM) was founded in 1971 and runs 293 active landfill disposal sites. Not many companies in the world run this number of landfills. One of their plants is located in Tullytown, New Jersey and the residents around this area have long drawn complaints about the smell of this Landfill.
