Fire at Corby recycler

Fire fighters have tackled a blaze at a recycling site in Corby, Northamptonshire.

The incident occurred on Friday night at the premises of Recycle Force and, at its peak, 10 fire engines were in attendance.

Warren Ellison, a group manager at Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue, told the local newspaper that the fire had been confined to a single building by 2.30am after the initial call to the service at 00.50am on Saturday morning.

“At the moment the cause is under investigation but it is not believed to be malicious,” he added.

Recycle Force director Robert Kirk told MRW that he expected normal operations to continue during clean-up. He thanked the emergency services for their efforts and customers for their support.

“Recycle Force is a multi-building site, and we will still be able to operate using our other unaffected building and fleet of vehicles,” he said.

“Our business continuity and disaster recovery plan was put into place over the weekend which will allow us to maintain full customer service from this week and beyond.”
