SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

City officials closed the Iowa City Landfill on Thursday because the wind's direction was blowing smoke toward the administrative offices, according to a city press release.

The Landfill will reopen today; in the meantime, commercial haulers were directed to deliver waste to the Cedar Rapids Linn County Solid Waste Agency in Marion.

The Iowa City Fire Department will continue its "stir, burn, and cover" operations through the next week, weather permitting. City officials expect the fire to smolder weeks after they conclude the process.
