A Nottinghamshire company whose permit was suspended after a fire at one of its sites has gone into administration, with the loss of 21 jobs.
A statement from joint administrators from PwC said the company had experienced financial difficulties following the permit suspension in February.
The Environment Agency (EA) took action as a result of the risk of “serious pollution” caused by a blaze at the company’s main recycling plant in Worksop.
Nottinghamshire Recycling’s activities include recycling and waste management services, with sites at Nottinghamshire and Kiveton, Sheffield.
It has a turnover of approximately £4m and had 29 employees.
Eddie Williams, joint administrator and director at PwC, said: “The operations are well located with a strong and supportive customer and supplier base but regrettably the current position of the company is such that we have had to make the immediate decision to mothball the operations at both sites which has resulted in 21 redundancies.”
