Beware of Unscrupulous Contractors Dumping Waste Illegally

Apparently some unscrupulous contractors have moved into the Longmont area.  We have received reports of dump trucks entering Longmont neighborhoods and dumping waste and debris illegally, most likely from areas around Longmont.  This is not authorized and prohibited by law.

We would ask our community to get a license plate and description of the truck.  If you can, snap a photo with your phone or camera.   If you see someone illegally dumping in your neighborhood, please don’t confront, call the Longmont Police at 303-651-8501 immediately.

Longmont Flood Information Update 16:21

Longmont has demonstrated we are a resilient community and open for business. Our city staff and community has demonstrated our strength and resolve. We are rebuilding our roads and infrastructure at unprecedented speeds. LPC has electricity to all but a few homes, we are providing clean drinking water to Longmont and Left Hand Water District. We are poised to bring power and Wi-Fi to Lyons.

We are Longmont Strong.

We are having great success in our neighborhoods with cleanup efforts. In addition to providing roll-offs dumpsters the City of Longmont has hired contractors with heavy equipment to assist in neighborhoods. They are using this equipment to clean debris piles filled with wet carpet, mud and silt. This has significantly added to the speed of our recovery. The city has heavy equipment in the flood areas, the additional cars on the streets are making it difficult to maneuver around. We are asking those who are helping friends and neighbors to park cars outside of the affected neighborhoods and walk in when you can.

Businesses continue to support the community. We’ve had tremendous support at our evacuation shelters, emergency operations center and out on the streets. Families and businesses owners are literally stopping in the streets and dropping food to crews and check points.

 

We have closed the call center. We are asking our community to call the necessary city department for future requests. These numbers are listed below.
