Police are investigating the death of a worker at a recycling plant near Paisley.
The William Tracey Group confirmed the victim was one of its employees, and said it was working with investigators to establish what happened.
A Police Scotland statement said: “Around 12.30pm on Wednesday 28 March 2018, police were called to an industrial unit on Burnbrae Road, Linwood, after a 28-year-old man had been injured.
“Emergency services attended but the man died from his injuries a short time later.
“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident. A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal [Scotland’s prosecution service].”
A company spokesperson said: “William Tracey Group is deeply saddened to confirm that an employee has died as a result of an accident.
“We are working closely with the police and our health and safety team as they investigate the incident. Our first thoughts are with our employee’s family and colleagues as we support them at this tragic time.”
The company was founded in 1948 and describes itself as “one of the UK’s leading recycling and resource management companies with a full range of environmental services”, with six depots in central Scotland and one in Gateshead.
The waste industry’s overall safety record has worried the Health and Safety Executive, which told it last autumn to tackle a fatal injury rate which is 10 times the average for all industries and a non-fatal rate of double the average.
