Anuha staff treated after suspected chemical discovered

IF fire fighters can determine where a suspected chemical leak came from its likely Anuha Services will use video footage in a bid to prosecute, general manager Robert Evelyn said.

At about 2pm today, staff at Anuha Services smelt an odour at the Gatton facility which prompted the call to Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and paramedics.

About 20 employees were treated by paramedics on scene and issued with arm bands in case of any aftermath affects.

Mr Evelyn said the paramedics checked everyone out who was on site.

"All we know is there was an odour that came from something, we don't know what it is yet," Mr Evelyn said.

"It appears someone has put something in their recycling bin that they shouldn't have."

Mr Evelyn said the recycling trucks were fitted with video cameras, and if they could determine where the possible chemical came from, they would look to prosecute.
