Anomous A., AL
I live next door to a limestone landfill where rezoning of Fort Benning, GA has led to torn down streets, homes and communities. Slabs of concrete are being dumped, and huge 100+ acre piles of trees are being burned nightly. The fumes are taking a toll on my sinuses and lungs.
During the day not as much is being burned, if at all, but the sight of the smoldering fumes remains prevalent. I have air filters and ionizers in my home, but they are unable to remove something that is so constant.
