Berkeley Co. Council asks DHEC to review company's permit after odor complaints

MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) -

The Berkeley County Council has asked DHEC to review a company's permit to see if they are violating any rules and regulations regarding an odor which has many residents concerned.

Residents in Moncks Corner said they are fed up with the stink coming from a GenEarth waste disposal facility on Oakley Road.

On Monday evening, councilmembers said if GenEarth is found guilty of violations, then council would allow the Director of Sanitation to start the process of terminating GenEarth's contract.

Residents along Oakley Road said they've been dealing with the smell for several months. GenEarth's attorney says they have tried several methods to reduce the smell like chemical and heat treatments.
