Balcones Opens Recycling Facility in Austin, Texas

Balcones Resources Inc. has opened a new recycling facility in Austin, Texas.

The Austin-based Balcones said in a news release the material recovery facility (MRF) can process 25 tons of single-stream recycling materials per hour. The MRF cost $25 million, which the company said is the largest capital investment by a privately held recycling firm in Texas history.

The facility is located on a 10-acre site in Austin. It was designed for expansion. The company said it handles a significant portion of the city’s commercial recycling, and in October will begin processing 60 percent of Austin’s residential curbside recycling material.

The new facility also will have access to a rail line.
