Currently, the city of Austin is accepting letters from potential recycling and reuse tenants who are interested in relocating to Austin Resource Recovery’s new [re]Manufacturing Hub. According to a press release, “This new industrial park is positioned to become a home for the local circular economy which will attract, retain and grow zero waste businesses. The project is expected to be an economic driver for new jobs and investments throughout the Central Texas region. … Currently, many of the recyclable items collected in the City are sent out of state or overseas for manufacturing. The [re]Manufacturing Hub will be a place where recyclables can be transformed into new products locally. The co-location of multiple firms within the recycling and reuse industry will create opportunities for synergistic buyer and supplier relationships. The project will also incorporate sustainable design principles, green infrastructure and upcycled signage.” Letters of interest are being accepted until Oct. 19. More information is available here.
