REMEMBER How to report an incident
If you believe odour is coming from the Reviva site at Elstree Hill South and now from Woodcock Hill Farm on Barnet Lane, and you consider it offensive then please contact the Environment Agency free Incident Hotline on 0800 80 70 60. The incident hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is very important that they receive complaints when there is an offensive odour present in order to allow them to build a picture of what is happening on the site. It is also important that the information received from complainants is detailed and accurate and that they receive it as soon as possible so that their actions have the most effect.
