As a condition of the State of Colorado Laws regulating municipal solid waste landfills, facilities must close during periods of excessive winds to minimize blowing trash. Wray Gulch Landfill must stop taking trash when winds exceed 25 miles per hour or 40 mile per hour gusts.
We understand the inconvenience this causes people who drive all the way to our remote landfill with a load of trash only to be turned away because of high winds.
In our effort to advise customers of a wind closure or any other adverse conditions that may affect your trip to the landfill, we offer a few suggestions on the right.
Is the landfill closed right now?
