    The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) is advising that there has been gradual improvement in smoke conditions at the Riverton City Landfill, as the Jamaica Fire Brigade continues to apply cover material to contain the fire.

    The situation is expected to continue to improve.

    The ODPEM wishes to advise that while unauthorised persons have been restricted from entering the dump, the facility remains open for regular operations as the section of the site that collects daily waste is fairly safe.
