Refurbishments and new construction greener thanks to new recycling facility
By Ben Wheatley
Cherry is making it easier for Galveston County businesses to recycle
deconstruction waste. The Houston based recycling and demolition
company has just opened its fourth recycling center—which is situated in Hitchcock, Texas.
The new 12-acre Hitchcock Recycling Center, located at 5402 Highway 6, accepts concrete, asphalt, residential composition asphalt shingles and tires for recycling. This recycling center also pays for discarded concrete.
Cherry also accepts and recycles tires at its 616 Almeda Road Recycling
Center in Houston. Its other Houston area recycling centers are located at 6019 Crawford Road and 4601 Holmes Road.
Overall, Cherry’s recycling centers process more than a million tons of concrete and asphalt and thousands of tons of steel every year. As such, the company is considered one of the biggest recyclers in the state of Texas.
