One compactor holds approximately 5 tons of mixed paper, so what is stored in the compactor then processed saves 35,000 gallons of water and 21,000 kwh of electricity.

Zero Waste

Balcones Resources was founded on recycling and has grown to become the largest independent recycler in the Southwest. Our first recycling programs were designed for the commercial printing industry. Since then we've developed customized recycling programs for a host of industries and businesses including multi-tenant buildings, manufacturing facilities, distribution centers and corporate campuses.

We are not associated with a landfill, so we only accept materials that we can responsibly recycle. Balcones recycles several grades of paper, plastic, metal and glass*. Our SingleCycle® program makes recycling easy for participants. SingleCycle® takes the guesswork out of recycling and allows users to comingle all acceptable items in a single recycling container. Sorting is no longer necessary.
