Recycling plant to be built in Baltimore County this year

A local company said Friday that it is teaming up with another firm to build a Baltimore County recycling plant expected to employ about 50 people.

Canusa Hershman Recycling Co., jointly headquartered in Baltimore and Connecticut, and Kentucky-based QRS Recycling Co. plan to open the "plastic recovery" facility late this year.

The plant will take bales of mixed plastics from other recycling facilities — soda bottles, yogurt cups and the like — and separate the resins so they can be sold, said Jonathan Sloan, president of Canusa Hershman.
