Out of the ashes of a fire that destroyed its main building, comes a new beginning for Recycled Plastics Inc. (RPI) in Garfield.

By last Thursday, the company had replaced the inventory that was lost in the March 14 blaze and moved to another building on its site along County Road 82, according to owner Clair Angland.


"We're up and running again," Angland said in an interview with the newspaper last week. "We're looking forward to business as usual and are moving forward."
