Please be safe and enjoy the Fourth of July!

With warmer weather and the upcoming holiday, many of us will celebrate Independence Day with friends and family over a barbeque. The Mesa County Landfill staff would like to take a moment to remind everyone of the importance of making sure charcoal barbeques, fire pits, and fireworks are completely extinguished before being thrown out with the garbage.

Landfill Operators Brandon Hoskin, Cody Schmalz, and Kristi Faidiga put out a landfill fire yesterday around 4:30 a.m., which took approximately 2 hours to put out. It can take time for a landfill fire to catch, but one smoldering ember is all it takes to get a blaze started.
