Taunton Recycling Centre fully open after fire

Taunton’s Priorswood Recycling Centre, including its Reuse Shop, is fully open after a fire in an adjoining building was tackled by the fire service last week.

The site was temporarily closed on Friday 10 March but no one was injured and the fire was not in an area used by the public.

A spokesman for site operator Viridor said:  The site’s emergency plan was instigated quickly and efficiently with everyone evacuated off site safely and in line with health and safety procedures.”
