News Release

Radiation Detection at the Landfill

Department: Solid Waste
Release Date: Dec 14, 2012

Contact Information:

Stephen Gillette, Director, 498-5762, sgillette@larimer.org

Radiation detection systems have been installed at the Larimer County Landfill entrance and at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility (HHW). These systems were installed in an effort to protect Landfill staff, ensure environmental compliance, and guarantee that we are not shipping unacceptable waste from our Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

Please be aware that if any load hauled to the Landfill proves to be radioactive, it will be rejected and/or subject to notification of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Radiation Division.
 
For more information, contact Steve Harem, Environmental Specialist, at (970) 498-5761 or Linda Hammett, HHW Manager, at (970) 498-5771. For questions regarding radiation rules, contact the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at (303) 692-3300.
