Fire at SCA recycling centre


Around 150 tonnes of paper has been destroyed by a fire at an SCA Recycling facility.

A fire broke out last week at an SCA Recycling facility in Cambridge, but was in an isolated part of the site, which meant it could remain operational throughout.


SCA director Steve Smith said: “Our site manager is meeting with fire officers to try to establish the cause. We are not quite sure what happened, but we do not believe it was suspicious in any way.

“Sometimes things like this just happen at recycling plants when the paper bales get overheated. There will not be a company investigation beyond what we are working on with the fire service.”
