IESI Acquires Recycling Facility in Pflugerville
 IESI Acquires Recycling Facility in Pflugerville | aust_txbz

Texas Business reports:  Pflugerville—IESI Corporation ("IESI"), a subsidiary of IESI-BFC Ltd., announced today it has acquired Central Texas Secure Shredding and its recycling facility in Pflugerville.

Central Texas Secure Shredding provides secure document destruction processes that include the collection of documents in locked containers, transportation in locked vehicles, mixing of documents from multiple sources prior to shredding, baling and recycling of the materials. All processes are documented and include a Certificate of Destruction.

 The recycling facility will now be called IESI Central Texas Shredding and Recycling Facility. IESI plans to expand the facility's current document destruction processing services to incorporate a fully integrated single stream recycling process to efficiently serve the  communities in the Austin area by the third quarter of 2010.

The 20,000 square-foot IESI Central Texas Shredding and Recycling Facility will continue to provide secure document destruction processing and is, in addition, capable of processing 150 tons of recyclable material per day. The system will allow IESI the opportunity to expand its single stream processing capabilities. Because the facility will utilize the single-stream process, customers can combine paper, glass, metals, cardboard and plastics all in one large container.

This acquisition demonstrates IESI's ongoing commitment to environmental initiatives. In August 2010, IESI's Seneca Meadows Landfill, in Seneca Falls, New York, opened the 600-plus acre Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve - part of the company's eleven hundred acre native plant conservation project - which comes complete with seven miles of hiking trails. The gateway to the Seneca Meadows Wetland preserve is a Leed certified community education center which educates all ages in partnership with the Audubon Society.

 In 2009, IESI constructed and opened the first LEED Certified privately-funded single-stream material recovery facility (MRF) in the United States located in McKinney.

IESI is a full service solid waste management company founded in Justin, Texas in 1995. IESI is a subsidiary of IESI-BFC Ltd., one of North America's largest full-service waste management companies, providing non-hazardous solid waste collection and landfill disposal services for commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers in six provinces in Canada, and eleven states and the District of Columbia in the U.S.
