Our Commitment to Preserving the Environment
As the Midwest’s leader in recycling and waste diversion programs, roll-off container service and waste removal, LRS considers the recycle component of our industry to be the area that we can create the most positive change. To that end, LRS provides a sustainable business model that is entirely built on increased recycling and waste diversion. As reflected in our name, we believe in recycling first, whenever possible.
LRS vows to be a sustainable partner for our community. We understand that the waste industry faces a great deal of ecological responsibility and choose to embrace that responsibility. Our commitment allows us to uncover innovative solutions that will help keep our communities clean and more sustainable. Our eco-conscious business model allows us to prosper from recycling versus sending waste to landfills. This aspect has galvanized our intentions to re-route and reclaim what would have otherwise been waste sitting in a landfill.
We see this model beneficial on two levels:
- We remain vigilant about our environmental footprint.
- We pass our diminished disposal costs on to our customers.
