THE DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

I started at the Larimer County Solid Waste department in August of 2000. At that time, it was forecasted that the landfill would be “full” in 2003. The department was able to secure a vertical expansion in 2003 and now we are approaching the new end date for being “full”. If current volumes continue, the landfill will reach capacity around the end of December 2025.
