Y'know what? It doesn't matter. Not to you, not right now.

What matters is the person you are trying to sell the house to, when you eventually go to sell. You'll have to convince *them* that being near a landfill isn't a problem.

Is the presence of a landfill less than a mile away generally considered to be a GOOD THING? When you tell your co-workers, are they going to be all, "Wow! Great! Way to go you lucky dog!"
or are they going to be all, "Oooh, bummer. Hope everything works out okay for you."

We used to live near (not not *that* near) a landfill that I drove by on the way to work. The smell mostly wasn't a problem. But after a few years, the landfill site got a new nickname. "Mt. Trashmore" Over the years it got taller and taller.
