Green waste fire at Worthing recycling site

A fire involving some 200 square metres of green waste at a compost site in Worthing has been put out by West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (WSFRS).

Environmental and recycling equipment company Eurogreen owns the site, where the fire began on the morning of Saturday 6 December.

Firefighters used mechanical diggers and foam to prevent the flames from spreading and handled the incident back to the site manager.

However, the fire service was recalled to the scene on Monday 8 December before the blaze was put under control. WSFRS has now left the site.

People working close to the site complained on Twitter that the smell created by the burning waste was “overwhelming”.

Eurogreen supplies recycling products, commercial combined heat and power boilers and provides hiring services of new and used equipment.
