Police investigate recycling plant death

Police and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are investigating a death at a recycling plant in Scotland.

The Daily Record reported that the man was killed during an “horrific incident” at the EIS Waste Services plant in Nigg, Aberdeen, on Monday afternoon.

Details of the incident are few and it is not known whether the victim was an employee of the firm.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police and the HSE are making enquiries following the death of a 30-year-old male in the Nigg area at around 2.30pm, Monday 3 October.

“Enquiries are at an early stage and are ongoing to establish the circumstances. As with all sudden deaths, a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”

EIS provides collection, treatment, recycling and waste disposal services to public and private sector organisations in the north-east.

The company has been contacted for comment.
