The Trinidad and Tobago Solid Waste Management Company Limited (SWMCOL) has advised the public that over the weekend its Emergency Management Team (EMT) was alerted about a fire at the Beetham Landfill.
SWMCOLL, in a statement this morning, said while the fire has been contained, smoke is still emanating from the site.
As such, SWMCOL advised the public and those who live in the vicinity to exercise caution as it investigates the cause of the fire.
“We also take this opportunity to thank the Trinidad and Tobago Fire Services (TTFS) and SWMCOL’s Emergency Management Team (EMT) for their efforts in extinguishing the fire,” it said.
Further updates will be provided as it becomes necessary.
