Recycling facility reopens after fire


IT WAS THEN POSTED TO FACEBOOK THAT THE ALERT WAS A MISTAKE AND THERE WAS NO ZOMBIE ACTIVITY. [ LAUGHTER ]. A SIGN OF RECOVERY AFTER A DEVASTATING FIRE. THE FACILITY IS OPENING ITS DOOR AND WE ARE TAKEN INSIDE. Reporter: THIS FACILITY WAS CLOSED FOR A LITTLE LESS THAN 2 MONTHS. NOW THEY’RE OPEN AND BACK IN BUSINESS AND I HAVE WITH ME HERE DONE MCCORMICK TO TELL ME A LITTLE — DON MCCORMICK AND TO THEY WILL ME ABOUT THE FIRE AND HOW YOU’RE MOVING FORWARD. IT WAS A DEVASTATING FIRE WE CAN’T BE SURE BUT POSSIBLY CONTAMINATION. NONREPSYCH ABLS BEING PUT INTO THE RECYCLABLE BIN. WE ARE GLAD TO BE REOPENED. WHAT RESIDENTS CAN DO TO HELP US IS ONLY PUT IN CLEAN AND DRY PAPER AND CARDBOARD, PLASTIC BOTTLES AND JUGS AND ALUMINUM AND STEAL — STEEL CANS. NOTHING ELSE. NO PLASTIC BAGS OR CLOTHING OR SCRAP METAL AND CERTAINLY NO NEEDLES. SO RESIDENTS, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Reporter: DAWN, IT IS AMAZING SOMETHING SO SYSTEM COULD ENCLOSING UP THE SYSTEM AND POTENTIALLY CAUSE A FIRE. THIS MACHINERY HAS STAR SCREENS AND IF YOU PUT PLASTIC BAGS AND CORDS AND THINGS IN THERE IT GETS WRAPPED AROUND THE MACHINERY AND CREATES HEAT AND FRICTION AND CAN SPARK A FIRE IN THE PAPER AND CARDBOARD. THAT’S WHAT WE BELIEVED HAPPENED HERE BUT, AGAIN, RESIDENTS CAN HELP US BY RECYCLING RIGHT. Reporter: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT REOPENED. YOU WERE OUT SOURCING COMPETITION ALL OVER THE STATE BUT YOU’RE OPEN NOW. WE HAD TO MOVE SOME OF THE MATERIALS. SOME WENT TO COCOA BEACH WE HAVE A FACILITY AND SOME WENT TO COMPETITOR, WE DO FROM TIME TOO TIME THE INDUSTRY COLLEAGUES. WE ARE GLAD TO BE BACK IN BUSINESS AND EMPLOYEES ARE GLAD TO BE BACK AT WORK. GETTING THE RIGHT MATERIAL CURB SIDE IS SO IMPORTANT. I CANNOT RESTATE ENOUGH WHAT DAWN SAID RECYCLING RIGHT IS
