LRS Celebrates Earth Day – April 22

LRS Celebrates Earth Day – April 22


Each year on April 22, 180 countries around the world come together to show their support for environmental protection. Since 1970 when the environmental movement started, people across the globe have stood up and fought for what they believe in: a cleaner and more sustainable earth.

As the largest privately-held waste and recycling company in Illinois, Lakeshore Recycling Systems upholds the responsibility to be a strong voice and leader in protecting the environment. Our company goals allow us to constantly work towards innovative solutions that divert and reduce waste and continually increase recycling. Our vision is a world with zero waste and we are certain that with innovative recycling processes and community awareness, we can truly make a difference on this earth.

In search of an LRS Earth Day Hero

To kick-off the Earth Day celebration, Lakeshore is in search of an LRS Earth Day Hero. We encourage our community to start a conversation and help us raise awareness by letting us know how you are making a positive impact for Earth Day. Share a photo of your Earth Day impact and we will select a winner to receive an award and be featured in the spring issue of our quarterly newsletter, REgenerate. (Contest details at bottom of the page)

Get involved today

Lakeshore knows that to make a difference on Earth Day, it takes more than just one person defending the environment. To truly make the most out of this day means that everyone must get involved in some way. Lakeshore’s Earth Day goal is to spread environmental awareness throughout our community. Each day up until April 22, we will share an environmental fact through our various social media channels. We encourage you to check for our daily posts along with helping us grow our reach by sharing and commenting on these posts.

Today, we stand with our community fighting for a cleaner and more sustainable place to live. And as the leading Chicagoland waste and recycling company, we will continue to do our part in ensuring that we are leaving a less impactful footprint on this earth.
