The plant, operated by SiteServ Recycling has had four fires in as many years.

Crews are still tackling the most recent, with drivers travelling close to the site being warned to take care.

We have decided to suspend the importation of waste under the environmental permit for the regulated facility at Hangars A and B, off the Llanwit Major Road, Llandow, operated by SiteServ Recycling (SW) Ltd.

While our main focus at the moment is working closely with South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Public Health Wales and Vale of Glamorgan Council to manage the effects of the blaze, we have taken this emergency measure to minmise further risks of serious pollution.
