In honor of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) monumental 70th anniversary, South Post Oak Recycling Center is thrilled to announce its selection as one of the esteemed Legacy Business recipients. This significant accolade recognizes the dedication, innovation, and success of businesses that have effectively harnessed the resources and support of the SBA over the years.
The SBA has long been a cornerstone of support for American entrepreneurship. Over its seven-decade history, it has helped countless businesses, from startups to household names, grow and flourish. South Post Oak Recycling Center stands as a testament to this legacy, having evolved from a local enterprise to a recycling industry leader with the SBA’s invaluable assistance.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the SBA in the agency’s historic year. Our journey from a small startup to an industry leader was paved with challenges, but with the unwavering support of the SBA, we were able to navigate them with resilience,” said South Post Oak Recycling Center CEO Brandi Harleaux. “This acknowledgment is not just for us, but for every entrepreneur who dreams big and works tirelessly to achieve it.”
Founded in 1994, South Post Oak Recycling Center was built by catering to working-class heroes such as plumbers, electricians, and HVAC technicians. SPORC offered a convenient platform for these workers to dispose of their metals, like brass valves and insulated copper wires, gathered from various job or project sites over days or even weeks. Today, SPORC has grown its reach to encompass manufacturing, governmental bodies, demolition firms, and large corporations spanning facilities, maintenance, property disposal investment recovery, and asset disposition. SPORC’s unwavering commitment to both household accounts and a mix of private and public sectors sets the company apart in a fluid market landscape.
