Residents Near Queens Waste Facilities Hope Legal Settlement Finally Clears the Air ([link removed])

Twenty years ago, Caroll Forbes noticed a foul, rotten odor hanging in the air around her childhood two-story brick home, located on a picturesque residential block in Jamaica, Queens. Concerned that there must be a dead body somewhere in the immediate area, Forbes called 911.

Only after no corpse was found did she learn the unpleasant odor was actually coming from privately-owned local waste transfer stations—American Recycling Management LLC and Regal Recycling Co. Inc.—that had recently arrived on Douglas Avenue, just four blocks away.

Two decades and many complaints later, the stench is still there. But hopefully not for long.
