Personally I would not take a chance living close to a landfill. Odors and traffic are part of it. They also attract scavengers--birds, rats, and other wildlife. They try to keep it covered, but that is difficult.

Ground water contamination. Natural gas formation. Settling.

More problems than its worth.
