Fire shuts down East Hants Waste Management Centre

A fire at the East Hants Waste Management Centre has closed the facility on Monday.

Communications Officer Jody MacArthur says multiple fire departments were on scene throughout the evening and early Monday morning.

The fire was inside the Waste/Recycling Transfer Station.

Monday's closure will allow for a clean up of the site and time to secure options for managing materials.

MacArthur says curbside collection is not impacted by this incident.
