Wyberton waste centre blaze leads to recycling warning
A serious fire at Wyberton’s household waste recycling centre has led to a new warning about disposing of batteries and electrical goods in recycling bins.
The warning comes from Coun Eddy Poll, Lincolnshire County Council member for Spalding East, after about 60 tonnes of recyclable waste went up in flames at the centre in Slippery Gowt Lane last Thursday.
In the face of adversity, everyone worked really well together and this was a great example of all the organisations coming together to overcome a problem
Fire crews from Donington and Kirton wearing breathing apparatus were among those who used water jets and thermal image cameras to deal with the blaze for which the cause is still under investigation.
