Welcome to Milpitas-Odor.Info

I will update this site with information regarding Milpitas Odor issues.  We have a grassroots movement seeking to eliminate the man made sources of odor in Milpitas.  Our first target is the Newby Island Landfill.  We are seeking to deny the permit for expansion that will increase the capacity of the landfill and extend the operations of the landfill.  We believe that the landfill is one source of odor affecting Milpitas/N. San Jose/Fremont.  More info. Here is a flyer.
