Operations at the Anguilla Landfill on St. Croix resumed Saturday after being shut down for a week by a fire, the V.I. Waste Management Authority reported.

The landfill stands ready to accept commercial and public solid waste, WMA said in a news release.

Haulers contracted to collect commercial solid waste, household waste, as well as waste from public bin sites have also resumed normal operations. Haulers are asked to exercise caution at the landfill and follow the instructions of landfill personnel.

The fire was first reported early Jan. 5. During the next few days smoke from the blaze was reportedly blowing across the runways of the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport.
