Twinsburg -- A new, smaller, more efficient flare to be installed at Glenwillow Landfill means a larger, more visible flame that could be mistaken for a fire emergency.

The flame is environmentally friendly, normal and expected, and does not constitute an emergency, said Twinsburg Assistant Chief Steve Bosso.

Twinsburg Fire Chief Tim Morgan and Bosso met with the Republic Service environmental manager July 20 to hear about the change.

The flare was put in place July 23.

Bosso said the flare is being reduced to match the decreasing volume of methane gas emanating from the landfill.

Those in back of Glenwood Preserves, the Heritage-Belleau corridor and the back end of Meadowood will be best able to see the flame.

The flame will be most visible from the back end of Glenwood Preserves, Heritage/Belleau corridor and the back end of Meadowood.
