Larimer County, Colorado— The Garbage Garage Education Center at the Larimer County Landfill will be closed the week of August 20, 2012  (Monday through Friday) due to construction for outdoor upgrades during the week.  A 16- by 24-foot “lean-to” type cover will be installed on the south end of the building to better accommodate and facilitate outdoor activities during rainy or hot, sunny days.
