Today the landfill was still burning, with smoke spewing across the area.
Even though thousands of gallons of water were used on the fire, and the volunteer fire fighters and other personnel made a gallant effort to quench it, the fire has not been put out. At present, it appears that keeping the fire from spreading is the main goal and is all that can be done.
If you have trash and/or junk to take to the landfill, call 706-468-4900 and find out if the landfill is open.
Note: Picture is of the smoke coming from the Jasper County landfill on 9/14/17.
