Town of Erie to Support Debris Cleanup from Marshall Fire Burn Area
On Dec. 30, 2021 the Marshall Fire ignited near the Town of Superior and spread to the City of Louisville. Preliminary damage assessment teams have identified more than 1,000 damaged or destroyed homes. These are our neighbors who will be rebuilding their lives and their homes for the next few years. One of the first steps to rebuilding is to clear away the debris currently on site, and that debris has to be moved to a landfill. The Town of Erie has agreed to allow the debris to be hauled to the Front Range Landfill.
To allow the drop-off of this debris, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) sent a Temporary Waiver for Asbestos Waste to be accepted at the Front Range Landfill. The Town of Erie has negotiated some points of the waiver and ultimately signed to allow this type of debris on site.
The Town has put together a list of frequently asked questions the public might have about this material acceptance. If you have additional questions that are not addressed within the FAQs, please send them to ErieSubmit under the "Other" category.
Thank you to the greater community for ongoing support of the recovery for our friends, neighbors, and loved ones affected by this tragic event, and for supporting our efforts in this area.
