Backed by leading circular economy investment firm Closed Loop Partners, Balcones Resources is an Austin-based environmental services company whose primary business is related to the collection, processing and selling of recyclable materials in the commercial and residential sectors of our economy. Today, Balcones processes and sells more than 250,000 tons of recyclables per year in Austin, Dallas, Little Rock, and Sarasota. The company’s recent acquisition of Single Stream Recyclers will help support its continued growth and the scaling of a circular economy in the South.
