Trash Talk

Here at Lakeshore Recycling Systems, we've noticed that more industries are working on green initiatives lately. One of those industries is the hospitality sector, since hotels can create a lot of waste. Think of the tiny shampoo bottles and the water it takes to wash all the towels or clean the plates used to deliver room service. Think of how much energy it must take to keep a hotel at a comfortable temperature and accommodate every customer's electricity needs. Now more companies in the hospitality industry are working on ways to be more sustainable.

Spring is here in Chicago, which means it is also peak moving season. Of course, moving can be stressful. You need to pack up everything and bring it to a new place, which can also create a lot of waste. Most people don't think about going green when they're in the middle of a stressful move, but there are a few easy steps you can take to make sure that your move isn't overly wasteful. Here are some of the top tips from Lakeshore Recycling Systems for a more eco-friendly move.

You’ll need a dumpster. Though you can buy a dumpster, if you’re not going to be using it on a regular basis, it would be a waste of money. For most purposes, you’ll be best-served with a dumpster rental.
