The demolition and recycling company Cherry, based in Houston, has opened its fifth Houston-area recycling center following the purchase of K.C. Crushed Concrete yard in north Houston

When operating at full capacity, Cherry’s new recycling center will process about 1,500 tons of recycled aggregates per day. The 10-acre facility also will process ferrous scrap at the site.

Cherry says that with the addition of the new recycling center, it will process between 8,000 and 10,000 tons of recycled aggregates daily in the Greater Houston area.

“We’ve now expanded our ability to reach more customers in the northern part of the city,” says Jim Mooney, Cherry division manager for recycled aggregates. “Cherry has always served customers in this area, but now we can do it more efficiently by operating a recycling center near them.”

Major equipment used at the new site include a 2854 Cedar Rapids jaw crusher, a 54-inch Simmons cone crusher and an 8-foot by 20-foot Hewitt-Robbins screen.
