Plaintiffs seek $250,000 in suit over environmental remediation

A Delaware corporation and a numbered Nova Scotia company are suing a Nova Scotia couple for the costs of remediating two Bedford properties. Plaintiffs American Holdings 2000, Inc. and 3258984 Nova Scotia Ltd. alleged in Nova Scotia Supreme Court documents that defendants Gerald and Dianne Bonang of Hants County are responsible for $250,000 in environmental remediations to a property at 39 Dartmouth Rd. in Bedford and an adjoining property at 90 Golf Links Rd. According to court documents, the Golf Links Road property, owned by a third party, was contaminated by the migration of contamination from the Dartmouth Road property. The plaintiffs alleged that American Holdings, which has offices in Florida and investments in Nova Scotia real estate, bought the Dartmouth Road property, on which the Bonangs held a mortgage, at a July 2 foreclosure sale. The plaintiffs alleged sale bidders were not informed that the provincial Environment Department had designated the Dartmouth Road property, in a notice posted July 2, a contaminated site requiring remediation. The plaintiffs are asking the court for a declaration that the defendants are responsible for remediation costs for both properties under a 2003 indemnification agreement. The are also asking the court to reserve jurisdiction to award costs for business disruptions at 39 Dartmouth Rd. , the site of a used-car dealership operated by the numbered company, as a result of remediation activity. None of the allegations have been proven in court. The defendants could not be reached for comment Thursday.

How to get Rid of Cigarette Smoke Smell

While researching this topic, I asked a relative for some practical advice to rid my house of cigarette smoke. Their answer was immediate and to the point: QUIT SMOKING! Who isn’t tired of hearing that one? The truth is that cigarette smoke permeates into our furniture, our carpets, our walls, our windows, and just about every other nook and cranny in our homes. Us smokers are generally unaware of the smell. The same problem exists in our cars. There are large numbers of people who are allergic to cigarette smoke, or suffer some very serious breathing issues when they come into contact with it. Even the lingering smell of cigarette smoke left in a home or a car by its previous occupants is not just noticeable, but may be close to intolerable to a non-smoker. So if you’re not ready to kick the habit just yet, let’s explore some methods of controlling the cigarette smoke in our environments. Who knows, the next person to bask in your odor may be a hot date or prospective employer and if…

EPA fines JBS Australia $15,000 for breaches at Scone Abattoir

THE NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has hit JBS Australia Pty Limited with a $15,000 fine for alleged breaches of its Environment Protection Licence at Scone Abattoir.

The matters came to light during an EPA inspection on March 18 this year.

EPA acting director Hunter Lindsay Fulloon said the EPA alleged the company had failed to operate plant and equipment in a proper and efficient manner.

"An EPA officer inspected the rendering plant at the abattoir and observed a large roller door into the abattoir was being left open, when it is a requirement to keep this closed when not in use to help minimise odours," he explained.

"The process of rendering converts waste animal tissue into useable proteins.
  This can produce strong odours.
   It is alleged that for 16 days, by failing to repair the roller door after it was damaged by a truck, JBS Australia failed to operate in a proper and efficient manner and potentially exposed the surrounding community to offensive odour…

Man makes thousands selling candles that smell like farts and body odour

Farts, vomit, body odour and wet dog might not be everyone’s idea of a nice smell. But there are people who love the scents as this business owner shows. California-born banker, Jeffrey Bennett, 57, started the Stinky Candle Company after noticing his family’s adoration for scented candles and realising there was a gap in the market for those which offer the fragrances of real life. In 2013, he started experimenting with producing the product, and a year later, in 2014, his stinky candle business became an operational company, now based in Chicago. Six years on, his part-time company turns over tens of thousands of dollars despite offering candles which smell like flatulence, vomit and even body odour. Other bizarre flavours include nacho cheese, gasoline, chlorine, money, wet dog, beer, skunk, onion, and rotten flesh.
Dad-of-two Jeffrey said: ‘Most of our smells are true to life, and authentic. ‘I can’t say in public what the worst smell request has been, but there are quite a few we …
