Fire hits Nottingham recycling plant

Another recycling plant was damaged by fire this week when Wastecycles Nottingham site suffered a blaze that fire fighters battled for four hours.

It was the second time in as many weeks that a recycling facility went up in flames, following the fire at Biffas £30 million plant in Leicester, which suffered extensive damage.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue stated that 25% of the building was damaged, but Wastecycle director Paul Needham dismissed this assessment as absolute rubbish. We were back up and running this morning as usual and there was only a bit of smoke damage to the building. He said it took only an hour for fire crews to bring the fire under control.

The cause of the fire is not yet known. Nobody was harmed and, according to Needham, the waste that did catch fire was non-recyclable and destined for landfill.
