Awful Smell

On the outskirts of NW Edmonton around Yellowhead and Anthony Henday there is an awful smell. Depending on the day and weather it is sometimes more pungent and/or covers a larger area. I have looked up online to see of there is a wastewater or sewer treatment plant or some kind of processing plant but have come up short. Can someone please tell me what causes that terrible smell?

    It’s caused by cleanit greenit composting in the industrial park between 215 St and the henday South of yellowhead.
    The stink is from when they churn up the composting materials.

      Colleen Stewart-Christie Not likely. They have vapor phase odor control systems in place there. Its the Clean It Green It composting facility in the Winterburn Industrial Park

  15. There have been complaints for years about that place (since it opened) and I’m sure if something could be done it would have happened already. Just be thankful you don’t live in the area.

    There’s always been a stink there, even before the composting – there’s also always been a oil/gas well there. You could see it burning at night.
