06 Jan Lakeshore Expands System-wide Service Areas with K. Hoving Companies Acquisition
Lakeshore is very excited to announce the newest addition to our state-of-the-art facilities, West Chicago MRF, which is based on our recent acquisition of K. Hoving Companies. This new Lakeshore Material Recovery Facility, is a full-service MRF for waste, recycling and C&D material. Having built a strong reputation in DuPage County and throughout greater Chicagoland, K. Hoving is the only recycling facility in Chicago that is nationally certified by the Recycling Certification Institute. Lakeshore now operates seven MRFs throughout the Midwest, increasing annual revenues to nearly $170 million and workforce to over 720 full-time employees.
The West Chicago Impact
Together, Lakeshore and K. Hoving are bigger, stronger and better positioned to provide innovative solutions that improve the quality of our customers’ experience. From a deep-rooted mission statement to lead the market in providing innovative and environmentally responsible waste and recycling solutions, we are committed to environmental excellence and customer satisfaction. Our commitment goes beyond waste collection, from the state-of-the-art facilities throughout Chicagoland to the unique services offered to both homeowners and business alike.
K Hoving’s business model complements the Lakeshore brand as it does not own a landfill and developed an environmentally friendly recycling and waste diversion process. K. Hoving is a company of service and reliability, greatly valuing the best interest of both the customers and the environment. These favorable traits will propel Lakeshore forward as we expand and strengthen service and facility operations.
System-wide Service Area Expansion
As a result of the acquisition, Lakeshore’s system-wide services have expanded to include portable restrooms, street sweeping, on-site storage and mulch as part of a new Temporary Services Division. West Chicago is also structured to strengthen Lakeshore’s reliable roll-off container service. We are excited to continue these services as we promise to deliver exceptional customer service in all facets of our business.
As the second largest portable toilet business in Illinois, Lakeshore provides sanitary restrooms for any occasion, from large events, to weddings, to construction job sites. We offer a variety of portable restroom options such as Standard Units, ADA Compliant Units, Deluxe Units and Executive Model Units.
Lakeshore offers complete street sweeping services that prevent the spread of dangerous contaminants into sewer systems and local bodies of water to clean up any city or job site, large or small. Equipped with blowing machines and vacuums, Lakeshore’s sweeper trucks will safely remove any contaminant including the hard-to-reach areas.
Lakeshore’s on-site storage offers our customers a safe and secure way to store tools, equipment, overstock and general storage needs on-site. Our storage containers are made of thick steel and have large locking double doors for maximum security.
Lakeshore takes the wood we recycle to reuse it as an eco-friendly mulch product. Every piece of our mulch is made from 100% recycled wood that were previously materials from buildings and fences. We offer an array of mulch options such as Premium Red Mulch, Premium Brown Much, Double Ground Natural Much and Economy Brown Mulch.
Controlling nearly 20% of the roll-off market, Lakeshore offers a full range of containers with dedicated 24-hour service. Our extensive, nearly 20 year roll-off and commercial waste experience will only be enhanced with the addition of West Chicago.
Our company is extremely proud of the way we come together in the community to strengthen operations and protect the environment. The addition of West Chicago MRF is just another step in the right direction to enhance recycling and waste diversion not just across Chicagoland, but throughout the Midwest. We proudly welcome all K. Hoving Companies’ customers, 100 employees and community to our Lakeshore family.
