Bridgeton Landfill Owners Offer to House Area Residents

BRIDGETON, MO (KMOX) – If you live near Bridgeton Landfill and the smell is getting to be too much the company which owns it is offering to put you up in a hotel.

Bridgeton Landfill LLC, owned by Republic Services Inc., will cover the rate and taxes at an extended stay hotel or an inconvenience fee of $125 per week for residents in Spanish Village, the Terrisan Reste Mobile Home Community, and certain areas of the Carrollton Village Condominiums.

The temporary relocation begins Sunday, May 19 and runs through June 14 as workers drill down into the landfill to remove pipes in hopes of alleviating the smell. During the work the stench is expected to worsen.
