Rubbish tips blasted with deodorant

Landfill sites in China are to be sprayed with deodorant to remove the smell as the weather gets warmer.

Beijing is currently deploying more than 100 canons to blast the deodorant into the capital’s landfill after complaints were received about the smell.

The deodorant cannons were invented by employees at the Gao’antun Garbage Landfill Plant, in Beijing’s suburbs, after local officials were forced to apologise for the foul smells.

Other devices, such as odour-eating sheets were also brought in, along with a machine that extracts the foul-smelling gases and uses them to generate electricity.
