We want to make recycling available to every company that wants to become more sustainable. We offer a variety of recycling services in order to accommodate the varied needs of our commercial customers. Review the list below to determine which recycling service is right for your office or facility. You can also contact us for our recommendation.
Balcones Recycling delivers the 96-gallon recycling carts at the agreed upon location and they are filled by the site’s tenants. Monthly cost is determined by the number of carts and service frequency. Carts are ideal for multi-family units, small offices, buildings with space limitations, and companies without a janitorial crew.
Balcones Recycling delivers a recycling dumpster at a chosen location and it is filled by the site’s tenants. We offer 4-yard, 6-yard, and 8-yard front-load dumpsters and monthly cost is determined by the size of the container and service frequency. Dumpsters are ideal for small office complexes, strip malls, small to midsize warehouses, and small to midsize multi-tenant buildings.
Balcones Recycling can provide new and used compactor units to customers through purchase and lease options. If the customer already has a compactor unit, Balcones provides a 40-yd receiver box to swap during pickups. Janitorial crew or designated staff will place recyclables inside the box and compact them when necessary. We will train your staff to read the pressure gauge to know when it is full. We offer routine and on-call service frequency. Charges include equipment rental and haul fee. Depending on commodity and volume, Balcones may offer rebates for the compacted material. This service is ideal for midsize to large multi-tenant buildings, manufacturing facilities, distribution warehouses, and corporate campuses.
Balcones Recycling can provide new and used balers through purchase and lease options if needed. The customer’s designated staff will gather material and feed the baler to create the bales. The customer will stage the bales in a dropped trailer (provided by Balcones) or in a covered area at your facility until there is a full load. We offer routine and on-call service frequency. Charges include baler rental (unless owned by customer), baling wire, and haul fee. Depending on commodity and volume, Balcones may offer rebates for the baled material. This service is ideal for large manufacturing and/or distribution facilities, businesses that produce a large volume of materials, transfer stations, and small to mid-size recyclers.
Balcones Recycling provides waste services at events in our market areas. Our capabilities allow us to help make events zero waste and limit the amount of material that is landfilled. These events include but are not limited to festivals, concerts, weddings, and races. We will deliver the containers needed to capture recycling, trash, and compost, and then haul and dispose the material properly. Balcones can provide staff that will manage the waste streams throughout the event. Following the event, we will provide a report that includes total weights, diversion rates, and overall sustainability impact.
Balcones Recycling provides waste audit services to customers looking to improve their diversion rates and better understand their waste streams. We will audit trash, recycling, and compost streams and then complete a full report that includes weights for each stream, types of material in each stream, and materials that are not being captured in your recycling and compost programs. Balcones also provides waste audits for customers that are trying to receive their LEED® certification. With our LEED® certified staff, Balcones Resources will conduct your required waste audit according to LEED® standards.
