Goldman Execs Natural State Recycling Team
Started the Company
Goldman Recycling was first started by the Goldman family in 1921. The company originally recycled rags, which were ripped for their fibers and then sold to paper companies to make fine writing papers. As the paper market grew, so did the company, branching out to include various grades of papers.
Fenley Family
In the mid ‘70s, the Fenley family purchased Goldman Recycling, continuing the long tradition of a service-first, family-owned business. The family added many new services, including the largest baler in the state at the time and an in-house multi-product shredder.
Balcones Resources
Balcones Resources was established in the Little Rock market in 1997. The company offered commercial, industrial and wood recycling. In 2000 the facility also became the home to the company’s fuel cube technology.
Change in Owners
Goldaman’s ownership changed again in 2007 when Randy Pierce and Matthew Adams purchased the company. The new leadership continued to target new customers throughout Central Arkansas.
Joint Venture
In 2015 Balcones Resources and Goldman Recycling formed a partnership to join the two companies and changed the name to Natural State Recycling. Through this joint venture, the company has been able to expand services and programs, helping businesses in all industries create cost-efficient and environmentally sound waste reduction programs.
