An investigation is underway after a body was found at a recycling plant in Pierce County, according to the sheriff's office.
Workers discovered a body that came in with a load of recyclables mid-Thursday in Fredrickson, which is east of Spanaway.
The body is that of an adult man, according to Pierce County Sheriff's Sgt. Darren Moss, Jr.
Pioneer Recycling Services, located at 4109 192nd Street East, is closed while Pierce County detectives investigate the circumstances.
"It's going to be a task for them to try and figure out what exactly happened," said Moss, Jr.
The plant is for processing recyclables. It is not a public drop-off site.
