More than 200 people in Perinton, Penfield, Macedon, and Walworth are now suing over the smell coming from the High Acres Landfill. 

The lawsuit argues the odors coming from the landfill are "sickening, foul, and nauseating" and it interferes with their enjoyment of life and property.

The suit asks a federal judge to require the landfill's owner, Waste Management, to pay damages to residents and also remediate the impact of the odors and reduce the trash coming into the landfill. 

Waste Management issued the following statement to News10NBC regarding the lawsuit:

“We continue to work with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the host communities to ensure compliance with all of our permits. We have not reviewed the complaint and have no comment at this time.”
