Recycle Center Division
The latest addition to the Support Services Group is the Recycle Center staff. Responsibility for County paper recycling was transferred to the Facilities Management Department in October 2010. The Recycle Division consists of three employees who pick-up, shred, bale and assist with the sale of over 500 tons of paper and cardboard each year. The Recycle Division supports CSCD and Labor Detail programs by providing projects for the participants to work on while fulfilling their time commitments to the local courts. Contingent on their availability, the number of participants used to assist with the production of bales fluctuates. It is our goal to use all available labor and resources to divert waste created by Tarrant County and partnering organizations from the landfill.
