I lived for 25 years 3 miles from the Kings Park dump. Smell? Not always. It depended on the direction of the winds. Health hazzard? Both my kids and I do not have have cancer. I am 63 and they are in their 20s and 30s.

Commercial methane adds a foul smelling chemical to it before its used.

As for us farting and releasing methane, its other gases that make our farts stink.
Thank you. That is exactly what I was meant.

I think the mods should create a farting 101 forum. It can even include tips on getting the stinkiest ones.

Interesting to see this post. I recall walking the picket line around Whiporwil Elementary when I was 5 or 6 years old in the mid 70s due to concerns about the water supply and health concerns. The school was closed and we were sent to Bretton Woods.

And wow, it's about 35 years later. Perhaps it's okay now?

Memories...

Thank you all in advance,

Go there at different times of the day...

YOU are thinking of buying there

YOU should be worried about knowing 1st hand

YOU don't want to be like the rest of the AH on this island, do you?

Don't listen to other people, YOU are buying the house, do your own research.


On that note, i never never smelt anything and think it looks great and you should offer more than the seller wants, like everyone does. . .

And when you do a big project you can walk to the dump and save money on carting costs........

Well, I've been living at Spring Meadows Co Op for about 3 months now. We've had quite a few REALLY HOT days and have NOT had any issues with fowl odors coming from the Hauppauge Landfill. This community is very nice....quiet. It's amazing how many misinformed people will stick their nose into a conversation just to get a laugh and show how ignorant they are.

The landfill has been capped since 1987 and accepts only construction debris. No matter where you live on Long Island you will be near a landfill or if you drink tap water you will be drinking water from a LI Aquifer which has various pesticides in it smart one (I love the oh I know everything even without doing research first types)
