The Greater Vernon landfill will reopen for business Wednesday.

The facility was closed Tuesday because of a fire in an area where wood debris is stored. As a result of the blaze, the commercial tipping area and the waste wood collection area have been relocated.

Customers are advised that air quality at the site has been impacted due to lingering smoke and customers with respiratory issues may choose to delay their visit.
