SWMCOL investigates cause of fire at Beetham Landfill


    Investigations have been launched into the cause of a fire at the Beetham Landfill yesterday.

    The Solid Waste Management Company Limited (SWMCOL) says the blaze started around 3:15pm and was contained by 9pm.

    That operation involved members of the T&T Fire Service (TTFS) and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM).

    SWMCOL however says residual smoke, while significantly reduced, is still emanating from the dump.

    As such, it is advising motorists and residents in neighbouring communities to exercise caution in that area.
