In March, Southern Recycling, LLC, along with officials from Warren County, the City of Bowling Green, the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce and Houchens Industries celebrated the groundbreaking of the company’s newest processing facility on Louisville Road. The facility will include state-of-the-art scrap processing equipment, which will increase the company’s capacity for paper, plastic and scrap metal recycling for the region.
“Houchens is excited about this expansion and what it will mean to the Bowling Green and Warren County communities,” said Spencer Coates, president of Bowling Green-based Houchens Industries. “We are grateful for the support this community has shown us.”
