Universal Resource Recovery preparing to resume production - CA
aid-off employees at Universal Resource Recovery are going back to work.
Gerald Patt, URR's general manager, said Wednesday afternoon that the Welland organic waste recycling company will open again in early November. He said full production won't resume until December.
All 12 workers -- half of the workforce there -- who were laid off in the summer will return, he said.
In late July, URR voluntarily shut down its plant on a temporary basis amidst complaints by nearby residents about awful odours emanating from the compost facility.
Patt is confident there won't be more odour issues because of improvements made by the company, such as the installation of more dehumidifiers to the plant's odour abatement systems.
"We're getting excited," Patt said of resuming production. "It's pretty significant the changes that have happened in there. I'm very optimistic."
Tim Zack is one of the returning employees. The 32-year-old, who works as a loader and operator at the plant, said he's eager to resume his duties.
"It's a good place to work. Good bunch of guys," he said.
The Welland man said although the temporary layoff notice was unsatisfactory, it wasn't a shock to him and his colleagues.
"We knew it was coming," he said, adding the closure was needed for the factory to undergo improvements, which he called "amazing."
Patt wouldn't disclose how much the improvements cost, only saying that it was "another significant investment."
