Body found at Wayne County recycling center

Workers at a recycling center in Wayne County Wednesday morning found a body while sifting through paper recyclables.

Wayne County Undersheriff Rick House said three Alpco employees were sorting though cardboard and paper in the company’s facility on Route 31F in Macedon when they found a deceased, middle-aged, white man among the recyclables.

The incident is being investigated as a suspicious death until determined otherwise, House said.

Alpco co-owner Janelle Plumb said the employees who found the body were “very traumatized.”

She also said nothing like this has ever happened at the facility before.
