Enva says Linwood fire will be ‘thoroughly’ investigated

Enva has confirmed that a fire that broke out last night (23 June) took place at its WEEE Solutions e-waste facility in Burnbrae road in Paisley. 

Scottish Fire Services attended the incident at 21.12pm on the 23 June and confirmed that as of 10:30am today (24 June,) crews remained on scene. 

According to the Scottish Fire Service, there were no casualties.  

The fire service’s current advice is for residents to avoid the vicinity of the fire. However, it has lifted its restrictions on keeping windows and doors closed.  


Enva’s statement read: “We would like to apologise to local residents and businesses for any inconvenience caused and kindly ask them to follow any advice issued by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

“There have been no injuries, and the cause of the fire will be the subject of an immediate and thorough investigation. We will be contacting any customers impacted as soon as possible to ensure continuity of service.  

“Our Linwood general waste recycling facility, whilst unaffected by the fire, will remain closed until the emergency services’ cordon is lifted and operational responsibility for the site is returned to Enva. We would like to thank the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the police for their extremely prompt and professional response.”
