Five firefighters were injured while battling a fire that broke out in a Bronx recycling plant just after midnight.

The fire was at Parallel Plastics in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx, at 900 East 136th Street. The FDNY says that they received a 911 call at 12:30 a.m., and the fire was two-alarms at first.

The fire grew to three alarms, and was under control by 3:30 a.m.

The injuries suffered by firefighters were not life-threatening.

Parallel Plastics says that its Bronx facility "provides collection, auditing and processing services to regional bottling companies and Bottle Bill redemption centers. We collect, receive and recycle over 1.2 billion aluminum, plastic and glass containers each year. Commodity materials recovered from this operation are recycled and repurposed for the production of items such as new beverage containers, fiberglass, fiber, carpet, clothing, food packaging and other recycled-content products."

The company also points out, "As New York State has increased its recycling effort through the expansion of its Bottle Bill, so too has Parallel expanded its processing capabilities to accommodate the resulting growth of available plastics for recycling."
