ATTICA, N.Y. - The recycling facility that was responsible for an awful smell that spread throughout the Wyoming County Village of Attica last summer has to follow new pollution guidelines established by the Department of Environmental Conservation.

The DEC announced Tuesday that it had finalized a consent order with Hillcrest Industries.

Under the terms of the consent order, Hillcrest Industries has to reduce facility emissions and fund environmental monitoring services.

The deal with the DEC also includes a $100,000 benefit project fund that will fund improvements to the pool and playground at Veterans Park in Attica.
