Southwest Waste Management would like residents of Shaunavon and area to know that they have begun a controlled burn at the Regional Landfill.

Marla Mellor is the Manager at the Regional Landfill. She says, "We do a controlled burn every year, sometimes twice a year, just to make sure that we get our trees and our clean wood burnt up before it gets too warm in the summer time so that we don't start a fire and grass fires and things like that."

The controlled burn began at nine a.m. this morning, February 12th, and will burn for 24 hours until nine a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday February 13th.

Mellor adds that the fire could smolder for a few days following the controlled burn, so people should not be alarmed.
