Greenstar North America has announced several
activities in its Texas operations, which the company feels will help grow the
company’s business in the Lone Star State.

While the company is seeing a significant increase in the recycling rates
throughout its Texas market, notably San Antonio and Dallas, the company also is
taking a number of steps to continue to grow its business.

The company is renaming at of its Vista Fibers operations in Texas. Vista Fibers
was acquired, as well as its parent company Mid America, last October. Through
the partnership Greenstar operates significant recycling operations in Dallas,
Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.

The company attributed the significant increase in recycling rates in San
Antonio and Dallas to the move toward a single stream collection program, as
well as the use of a 95-gallon recycling cart, compared to a smaller 18-gallon
cart used by San Antonio and blue bags used by Dallas.

Since making the switch, San Antonio has reported a 200 percent increase in the
material collected, while Dallas has seen a 300 percent increase in the material

"San Antonio and Dallas have helped to pioneer recycling in Texas," said John
Rabon, Regional Manager -- Texas, Greenstar. "The Cities' leadership, vision and
dedication to implementing state-of-the-art recycling programs and technologies
have enabled Greenstar to provide cost-savings programs while increasing the
amount of materials collected."

The company also recently signed an agreement with the city of Austin to provide
single stream recycling. The program is expected to begin this coming October.

"Greenstar opted to build the facility in San Antonio because it has the largest
recycling program in the State and will serve as an excellent hub to collect
materials from key regions across Texas."

The facility is scheduled to open in first quarter of next year, and will accept
single stream material from recycling programs throughout central and south
