Landfill fire “now extinguished”
In a statement this afternoon Natural Resources Wales have said “We are pleased to confirm that the fire that has been burning at Hafod Quarry Landfill, in Johnstown, Wrexham, is now extinguished.”
They say that the North Wales Fire and Rescue Service will be leaving the site later today.
The landfill operators, Enovert, will monitor the site over the weekend. Yesterday it was announced air quality equipment has been monitoring the situation – although no data has been released as of yet.
Natural Resources Wales added, “We will liaise with Enovert to agree the next steps for the site.”
“We would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.”
