At Texas Port Recycling, we strive to be good neighbors, good stewards of the environment and a great place to do business. Our employees, customers, communities and environment deserve nothing less than our very best every day. We take pride in our company commitment to the:
We strive to be a good neighbor in the communities in which we do business. For example, all our facilities support local community fire departments, providing space and vehicles for firefighters training with “Jaws of Life”.
We work with fire and police departments, and have developed strong community partnerships with programs like:
Of all the relationships we’ve built since 2006, we are most proud of our work with local law enforcement. All across the nation, our employees are teaming up with local police officers and elected officials to tackle the important issue of combating metal theft. For starters, we digitally record every single transaction in our facilities. Police use this information to identify suspects and help keep crime out of our communities.
We are deeply rooted in the communities where we do business and are respected for our integrity. Community residents and leaders know we have strict standards for what materials we’ll accept at our facilities. For example, we have the most comprehensive radiation detection system in the industry and have received awards for our performance in this field.
Working here creates a sense of loyalty. Maybe it’s because we know we’re making a real difference in the world…in our communities…for our customers…and for the environment. We’re passionate about our business and about building relationships that stand the test of time. We’re hands-on self-starters who thrive on opportunities, challenges and have a strong work ethic. And of course, we’re competitive. Yet first and foremost, we’re team players.
TPR offers many challenging opportunities for both men and women seeking a career in recycling, construction, manufacturing or operating heavy equipment.
When we – the nearly 100 teammates of TPR – look at scrap, we don’t see heaps of rusty, old metal. We see potential. Potential for shiny new cars and appliances. Potential for affordable feedstock for production. And of course, for conserving energy and creating a cleaner environment. Then we go to work, harnessing all that potential with the best technology in the business.
I worked at Texas Port Recycling full-time
Very good working relationships with all levels of the organization. Very involved in the strategy and process of the business - had a voice.
Work/Life balance could get skewed at times - always worked 6 days per week, and often worked 7 days. More administrative work added every year...took focus away from the safety program management and the actual nuts & bolts of the business.
Advice to Management
Entire management that was there is gone...so, I hope the new folks listen to the people doing the work.
