Is Stony Hollow Landfill safe?

Yes. State regulators and public health officials confirm that the odor does not present a risk to public health or safety.

We are conducting weekly ambient air monitoring to ensure the air in and around the landfill is safe for our employees and our neighbors. All sample results are reviewed by an Ohio EPA toxicologist to determine if any detected compounds are above risk-based screening levels for potential health threats. To date, no samples have demonstrated a potential hazard to human health.

RAPCA has updated their website with the ambient air monitoring data and will update the site with new results as they are received and after they have undergone Ohio EPA review.  More information can be found at

Stony Hollow Landfill continues to conduct surface water, ground water and gas monitoring and testing following Ohio EPA regulations and permit conditions.
