    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?

(CNN) - Residents of a western New York village are crying foul over a stinky odor they say is choking the community. It is believed the smell is coming from a massive pile of recycled materials at a factory.  

Attica residents came out in full force during a town board meeting. Many stood up and expressed their frustrations about a foul odor in the air. Residents believe the smell is coming from Hillcrest Industries' Recycling Operation.

It's so bad, it's like trying to take a breath under water. You can't live this way.

First residents thought the stench was from rotting foods and liquids Hillcrest has in a 60 thousand ton glass pile. But they now believe it's coming from plastics and glass inside it. So far, the DEC hasn't released any information to suggest that there are fires inside the pile. But after dealing with this for almost a year, residents and leaders say the issue needs to be solved.  

"We don't commute. We all live here too. The village board, the town board all lives here and we're concerned."

The EPA tested the air around the Attica schools.

"I hope that the test results of the EPA do come back concurrent or they agree with the findings of the DEC."

"Yes we have a very noxious order problem and it does need to be resolved and taken care of."

The results should be released by the end of the week. But some are skeptical anything will change.
