Proudly Serving Central Texas

Compass Recycling is proud to offer a variety of business recycling services all over the Central Texas region. City recycling programs only offer pickups and services to residential areas and homes. However, this leaves hundreds of thousands of businesses without proper recycling services. Most recyclable waste comes from companies and businesses in the form of:

  • paper
  • plastic machinery
  • secure document shredding
  • plastic bottles

This is where business recycling comes into play via companies like Compass Recycling. For a reasonable fee, Compass Recycling will take care of all of your business’ needs. We provide various sized recycling containers and even large lockboxes for secure documents that require complete shredding and destruction services.

Even though Compass Recycling’s main service center is located in New Braunfels, TX, we serve a variety of businesses through our San Antonio recycling programs. Compass Recycling services businesses containing one employee to 1000+ employees in the San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Schertz, Seguin, and other Central Texas areas and cities.

Also, regular weekly pickups from Compass Recycling ensure that your company’s recycling needs are being properly met within a timely basis.

Meeting Your San Antonio Recycling Needs

In 2008, Compass Recycling set out to do what no other large disposal / recycling company has been able to accomplish. Our goal was to provide an affordable and convenient recycling service to companies of any size in San Antonio and Central Texas. Instead of letting millions of pounds of recyclable waste be added to landfills each year, your company can begin making a difference by registering for a San Antonio business recycling program today.

Over 500 businesses have joined our program. We transformed the phrase "Why Recycle" to "Why Not".

Compass provides a sufficient quantity of carts to make it through the chosen service frequency (usually 2 to 4 weeks). Desk side containers are available through Compass.


On scheduled pick-up day, Compass collection carts are positioned at a designated location outside the building. If customer is not comfortable with moving carts into position, Compass can arrange to have our driver retrieve them.

Recycling Sensitive and Secure Information

At Compass Recycling, we treat all waste paper documents collected in our office recycling program as "sensitive". Our recycling customers can appreciate peace-of-mind in knowing that all collected paper documents are brought to our secure processing plant in New Braunfels, TX and do not touch human hands again once it is baled. It is also important to understand that the natural hydrapulping process at the paper mill completely disintegrates and de-inks waste paper into a pulp slurry which is the equivalent of muddy water. See a video of a Paper Mill in process.

As one considers the security threats associated with "dumpster diving" espionage and blowing papers at open landfills, one can quickly realize that in addition to all of the environmental benefits associated with recycling, Compass' office recycling program offers a more secure disposal option than standard waste disposal methods.

"Stealing trash is not illegal. The Supreme Court ruled in 1988 that once an item is left for trash pickup, there is no expectation of privacy or continued ownership". [California v Greenwood, 1988]. "In essence, the garbage that one can recover is covered by salvage laws and the rules of salvage are that whatever one recovers is theirs."


For businesses that prefer or require documents to be SHRED.
Compass offers a Certified Shredding Service.
