Attleboro residents worry about smells from Johnston landfill!

Posted: Updated:

   It's the stench that could be spreading.Residents in Attleboro say a foul smell- coming from the Johnston landfill... is now moving into their city, which is at least 14 miles away!

The odors are caused by excessive rain that forced- otherwise piped gas- into the air. Mike O'Connell of Rhode Island Resource recovery doesn't believe the smells are coming from Johnston.

He says treatments have been used.... so the odors should be gone by mid-December.
