A recommendation for residents living near Stickney Recycling to stay indoors has been lifted.
According to the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, conditions at the landfill improved since Friday night, when a fire broke out at the facility on Creekside Avenue in north Toledo.
Smoke from the fire caused a health hazard for people living within a half mile radius of the recycling facility. Resident from LaGrange to Manhattan, up to Bennet and east to the Jeep plant, were advised not walk or drive through the smoke.
As of 11 a.m. Saturday, health department officials say the hazardous conditions have significantly decreased, however, residents with respiratory issues or related health concerns should still avoid the smoke.
The fire at Stickney Recycling is still burning as of Saturday and it is not expected to extinguish for at least a week, according to the health department. Air monitoring around the facility will continue during that time.
Health officials say over the next several days, there will be digging into the landfill that may cause flare ups of flames, smoke and steam when water is placed on the area. This process will continue until the fire is extinguished.
If a health hazard arises again, the public will be notified.
