Commercial Waste and Recycling Franchise

Lakeshore Recycling Systems began its commercial franchise with Skokie on February 1, 2012 and incorporated waste and recycling services for the condominium buildings in June 2012. Lakeshore is also the residential recycling hauler for the Village.

We provided an exceptionally smooth transition for all Skokie businesses as we exchanged over 4,000 containers with new equipment from the previous hauler. During this partnership, we are proud to have increased the recycling rate by over 30% and continue to raise sustainable ethics and standards.

Single-Stream Recycling

Lakeshore Recycling Systems opened Chicago’s single-stream recycling center in 2016, which increases recycling and waste diversion. With this commitment, we vow to be an eco-friendly waste partner promise to make Skokie a greener place to live and work in the process.

Our single-stream recycling center sorts and separates recyclables. The facility handles more than 110,000 tons of high-grade residential and commercial single-stream recyclables at a time. Our 40,000 square foot recycling center recycles, sorts and separates over 20 tons of waste an hour.

Skokie and the Environment

As we continue to expand and improve our services, we are hopeful and confident that our partnership with the Village of Skokie will continue to grow as well. Located directly north of the border of Chicago, Skokie is one the most attractive places to live and work in Chicagoland. While it is very close to Chicago, Skokie also manages to maintain a small-town look-and-feel. The Skokie Park District maintains over 240 acres of land in ten different locations. At Lakeshore Recycling Systems, we want to keep those parks and the entire town of Skokie beautiful and green. With the help of the 64,000 residents and businesses that call Skokie home, we are confident that we can make a difference for the environment today and in the future.

If you are planning a project that will require a roll-off dumpster, on-site container, portable bathroom, or waste management and recycling services, call us today. Our team will help you decide on the suite of solutions that are best suited for your project. When your project is complete, we will pick up all the equipment you used and begin the process of recycling the materials.

Lakeshore Recycling Systems and Skokie are working together to create a greener place. Our recycling and transfer center in Northbrook is convenient and easy to get to for all of your waste management needs.
