Please may you provide me with: Statistics on the number of fires your fire service has attended at recycling centres, scrapyards, landfills, and any other waste management facilities since 1st January 2022. If possible, please also highlight any incidents where other regional fire services have been brought in to assist in putting out these fires - this is not completely necessary, but will help us to build a more accurate picture of this year’s waste fire incidents.
From 1st January 2022 – 27th December 2022, there were 8 fires recorded in Cheshire at Recycling premises. The Incident Recording System category of Industrial Processing > Recycling has been used for this request. 1 incident had an attendance from an appliance from an over the border fire and rescue service.
