This Week in Pics

Recently Mesa County Landfill's entrance was repaved, and it now has wider lanes, no potholes, and no speed bumps! To help maintain the new asphalt, motorists will need to adhere to the 15 mph speed limit. At this time, no new speed bumps will be installed, however, if high travel speeds become an issue, they will be added. 
It can take six months to a year for asphalt to fully cure. Drivers are encouraged to slightly offset their travel paths into the landfill to help prevent the development of ruts. The Mesa County Landfill staff is thrilled to have a freshly paved road and hope it will provide smooth sailing for years to come, and they thank you for your support in keeping the road in good condition and obeying the speed limit!

This week, Mesa County crews did a road check on Campbell Point Road, where the Bull Draw Fire happened. The wildfire was caused by lightning on July 29, 2018, and burned approximately 36,549 acres.

It has been almost a year since the Bull Draw Fire and visual lasting effects remain—dead trees remain along Campbell Point Road.
Campbell Point Road is open, however, only high-clearance 4-wheel drive vehicles can get through. The top of the road is definitely in need of some dirt and dozer work.

With warmer weather, many of us will celebrate summer festivities with friends and family over barbeques. 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 on Wednesday, July 3. The fire started at around 4:30 a.m., and it 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.
