RE-CY, LLC was approved for an amendment to its 4-year PILOT to enable the company to invest more than $8 million to move its facility to Memphis and create 36 new jobs.

RE-CY is considering moving its current recycling operation in Searcy, Ark., to a 170,000-square-foot facility at 3970 Delp Road.

In June, the company was awarded a 4-year PILOT to relocate its facility to 611 Winchester Road. According to RE-CY, the agreement to purchase the Winchester facility fell through.

Under the amended PILOT, RE-CY would sign a 10-year lease at 3940 Delp Road, invest $4.8 million in new equipment, $1.4 million in existing equipment and $300,000 in capital improvements. The company will also invest $200,000 in additional equipment not to be abated.

RE-CY, LLC was founded in 2011 to manage unprocessed plastic waste for flexible-packing manufacturers. Today, the company has grown into a full-scale recycling and manufacturing operation with 15 employees processing approximately 20 million pounds of repro resin every year.

This project includes a Community Reinvestment Credit in the amount of $2.2 million, the appraised value of the existing facility purchased by RE-CY. A Community Reinvestment Credit (or CRC) is provided to businesses to encourage investment in existing, vacant facilities in Memphis and Shelby County.
