Greenstar Recycling opens single stream recycling facility in Houston, Texas

21 Dec 2010

The NTR subsidiary is pioneering a new sustainable recycling solution in Texas, allowing people to combine all their recyclables into one bin.

So far, Greenstar, the North American subsidiary of NTR, has invested US$7m to upgrade to single stream recycling.

The waste management firm is aiming to help cities across Texas elevate their recycling rates via single stream. Already, there has been a 300pc increase in Dalls, a 200pc increase in San Antonio and a 75pc increase in Austin.

Greenstar launched its North American operations in 2007, establishing Houston as its headquarters.
