The Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA) will host its fourth annual community meeting on Thursday, May 22nd at 7:00 PM to discuss odors and other operational issues of importance to local residents. 

The meeting will be held at the WPWMA's offices at 3033 Fiddyment Road located at the corner of Athens Avenue in Roseville.
