In the early hours of January 27th a fire broke out at our Recycling Park on Longridge Road, Preston. Security teams quickly alerted emergency services and both the fire service and our own team were on site within minutes.
Our first-rate environmental and safety processes meant the fire was contained and no-one was injured. It was extinguished within three hours and the site is today [January 28th] fully operational.
We are now conducting a thorough investigation, working with the relevant authorities.
We are extremely grateful to Lancashire Fire & Rescue whose teams were exceptional. We are also thankful to, and proud of, our own team, a number of whom were on site on the night and whose commitment to creating and maintaining safe systems meant the fire was promptly contained and dealt with.
