Landfill Odors

The South Wake Landfill just outside Holly Springs is operated by Wake County and is subject to state regulations.

The N.C. Division of Waste Management asks that those reporting landfill odors keep a log, preferably for 7-10 days, noting the time, wind direction and weather patterns when odor is a problem.
