According to Dietz & Watson CEO Louis Eni, all spoiled food and debris will be removed by the end of today. That marks a major milestone since the packing plant caught on fire on Labor Day weekend.
According to Eni, more than 600 truckloads have already been hauled to three area landfills since cleanup started. Each truck hauled between 30,000 to 35,000 pounds of debris and food.
The next step is odor-suppression. According to Eni, they will continue using a plant-based odor-neutralizing mist around the perimeter of the site as well as direct application.
The burnt building will be completely demolished in the next couple of weeks.
"We will not rest until the quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods is back to normal," Eni said.
