5R Processors Ltd., a recycling company located in the former Praefke Brake & Supply Corp. on Oak Street in West Bend, has closed temporarily.
“We did order them to stop operations about two weeks ago due to some code violations,” city administrator T.J. Justice said. “We’ve met with them since that time and we’re hoping they come within compliance so they can open their doors.”
Last December, 5R Processors Ltd. received a conditional use permit to being recycling large electronic appliances at 133 Oak St.
The company, headquartered in Ladysmith, Wis., planned to hire up to 50 employees.
Calls to Jim Moss, owner of 5R Processors, were not returned.
