Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is working with recycling company South Wales Wood Recycling Ltd to tackle an ongoing fire at its Newport Dock facility.
Fires occurred in mid-November after a number of hotspots within the 18-20,000 tonnes of woodchip waste stored at the site were exposed. An issue of smoke has arisen through the efforts of extinguishing the break-outs.
In order to combat the issue, the operator is working with NRW and removing waste from the facility to try and reduce the amount of wood that could potentially catch alight.
