A Kruger recycling facility in southwestern Quebec burned to the ground following a March 12 fire. The forest products company says the loss of the facility will have very little impact on its recycling services. Nobody was injured in the fire.

The company’s main sorting and recycling facility is in Montreal, and administrative offices are adjacent to this facility. The site in Beauharnois, Que., was a secondary operation.

Kruger says the destroyed plant consisted of a 65,000 square-foot warehouse, and estimated that there were 3,000 tonnes of paper and wood inside the structure at the time of the late-night blaze.

 “Although it will take a few months to fully reorganize operations, some of the Beauharnois activities have already been relocated and the Kruger Recycling team is able to provide the same level of service as before to all their clients,” the company reports.
