Eurokey to rebuild destroyed plastics facility

Eurokey Recycling will rebuild its destroyed plastics recycling facility as soon as possible, its commercial director Joe Bisland has told MRW.

Following a fire, which burned down the facility last week Bisland said the cost of the damage was not yet known but it is thought to be several million pounds.

“Life goes on. We will recover from this,” said Bisland.

“At the moment the site looks like a scene of destruction. The actual building itself still needs to be inspected, but it is believed that the fire caused 90% damage.”

Leicestershire Constabulary confirmed that it is continuing to investigate the cause of the fire and is still trying to establish whether it is suspicious or not. However, Bisland added: “It is highly likely the fire will confirmed as arson. The police are currently looking into CCTV footage.”

Bisland explained that the fire had not had any effect on the business, which was continuing to fulfil customer orders from Eurokey’s sister company Recoverypak while new offices were located.

The fire which broke out on 2 May burned for several days while fire-fighters tried put it out. The blaze also destroyed baling equipment and three forklift trucks.
