The Memphis location joins only a small handful of the company’s 39 locations offering single-stream recycling services.
This form of recycling has streamlined the process, making it easy for the masses to recycle easily and more often. The idea is rather simple—people can place all their recyclables;
“We are excited that RockTenn has chosen Memphis as their new home,” said Stacy Michael, Recycling Coordinator at Waste Connections Memphis (http://wasteconnectionsmemphis.com). “This plant is just one of a handful throughout the nation … their decision to come to Memphis shows the dedication that our area has for reusing and recycling.”
The 150,000 square-foot Memphis plant will be the first single-stream facility in the city's metropolitan area. It represents a key investment in RockTenn's Recycling and Waste Solutions growth plan.
