$16K fine among Ohio EPA’s new orders for Dayton landfill

The Ohio EPA has issued a $16,000 fine to a Dayton landfill as one of several orders the site must comply with stemming from odor complaints from several surrounding communities in the past year.

The civil penalty, documents show, is among 19 orders the Stony Hollow Landfill must follow in seeking to resolve odor issues that have led to hundreds of complaints from Trotwood to Miami Twp. and several cities in between since April 2016.

Operations at the Waste Management Inc.-owned landfill have also led to the city of Dayton barring Stony Hollow from discharging waste into its system, a class-action lawsuit and Montgomery County investigating alternative sites for solid waste disposal.

The landfill on South Gettysburg Avenue plans to comply with the guidelines established last week by the Ohio EPA, according to Waste Management officials.

“We agree with these orders and will continue to work closely with the Ohio EPA and other regulators to make sure Stony Hollow Landfill completes all action items on schedule and adheres to the standards outlined in the plan,” Waste Management Senior Public Affairs Manager Kathy Trent said via email.
