Top 4 Recycling Tips For Autumn

Top 4 Recycling Tips For Autumn

Fall is here, which means that now could be a perfect time to start cleaning and decluttering. It also means that you’re going to be dealing with some more yard waste thanks to falling leaves. Fortunately, Lakeshore Recycling Systems is here to help anyone in the Chicago area with their recycling needs. Whether it’s a commercial or residential customer, we’ll make it easy to deal with the unique challenges that can come with the autumn season. Here are some recycling tips for these brisk months.

Properly Deal With Landscape Waste

One of the biggest recycling challenges of the fall is landscape waste, which include leaves that have fallen from the season. As you clean up your yard this autumn, there are a few ways that we can help. Pending your Chicagoland service area and place you call home, we offer a subscription service and “sticker” service that can help you get rid of your landscape waste.

This is a great way to take care of large quantities of leaves, especially for businesses with a lot of yard waste to deal with. Our sticker service is a volume-based system where our customers just pay for the amount of waste they need removed. Buy a sticker from us, place it on a bag or can, and we’ll remove your yard waste for you.

Dispose of Items From Your Summer Barbecues

If you’re someone who likes to entertain over the summer, a backyard barbecue is the perfect way to do it. If you’ve thrown more than a few parties, you might have some recyclable items to get rid of. This fall take the time to look through your outside bins or garage and check for recyclable materials.

Some of the recyclable materials may be aluminum cans and glass bottles, used for popular summertime beverages like beer and soda. Plastic bottles and jars can also be recycled. If you have any aluminum foil or disposable bakeware around, our single-stream recycling center can help you with that as well. We can even assist you with the tin or steel cans that you need to dispose of.

Start a Compost Pile

You can put some organic materials to good use in a compost pile this fall. Yard waste like lawn clippings and leaves can go in the pile along with some types of food waste. This can enrich your soil and help you plant a better, greener garden next year.

Do Some Fall Cleaning and Declutter

The start of a new season can also be a great time to declutter your home or office, and our recycling experts can help you with that. Go through your bookshelves, basement, garage, and other places where unneeded objects may have accumulated. If you have phone books, magazines, and newspapers, we can help you recycle them.

We can also handle old batteries. Some people know that they shouldn’t be thrown out with the regular garbage, but they don’t always take the extra step to recycle them and instead let them pile up. Bring them to us and we’ll dispose of them properly. No matter what your autumn recycling needs are, Lakeshore Recycling Systems can assist you.
