Balcones Recycling is expected to begin construction of its facility near PGA Parkway in Frisco in September, according to a state filing.

The Austin-based company agreed to acquire the 15-acre property from the Frisco Economic Development Corporation for $9.8 million, as previously reported by The Dallas Express. A Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing shows the estimated construction cost is $200 million for the nearly 139,000-square-foot facility. The anticipated delivery date is December 1, 2025.

Balcones also operates “pure-play” recycling sites in Dallas and Taylor, in addition to Arkansas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Arizona.

The company custom designs recycling programs to keep resources such as plastic, cardboard, batteries, and other recyclables out of landfills. Data from the environmental non-profit Recycle Across America claims about 80% of the waste in landfills is recyclable.

Meanwhile, Balcones plans to open a recycling site in McKinney in spring 2026 after city council members awarded a 15-year recycling contract to the company.

“The new Balcones facility is custom-engineered to exceed the City’s diversion goals,” according to a news release about the new location. “Balcones will prioritize recovery rates higher than 95%, employee safety, and quality control. All recycled commodities will be marketed in North America, prioritizing Texas-based companies.”

Resources at the site will include solar panels, native landscaping, and electric charging stations.

Balcones was founded in 1994 by Kerry and Becky Getter. The following year, a recycling plant was opened in Dallas before the company expanded to Arkansas and, later, to other states. In 2012, Balcones opened a site in Austin and by 2021, expanded to Taylor in Central Texas.

North Texas has been seeing significant growth in recent years, with companies and builders setting up projects around the metroplex. Dallas, however, has not been seeing a lot of it. As previously reported by The Dallas Express, the City’s Development Services Department has allegedly been plagued by various inefficiencies and periodic permitting backlogs under the leadership of City Manager T.C. Broadnax.
