Highland Park recently awarded six-year contracts for commercial and residential waste-collection and recycling services to Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), effective Jan. 1, 2016.
"We are pleased to announce the selection of Lakeshore Recycling Systems as our commercial and residential recycling and waste-collection partner," Ghida Neukirch, city manager for Highland Park, said. "The City of Highland Park proactively strives to become a more sustainable and eco-friendly community, and our partnership with Lakeshore brings forward progressive solutions that will continue Highland Park's position as an environmental steward."
LRS officials said the company earned more than $110 million in 2014 from revenues largely fueled by a significant expansion of new and existing business in education, retail, municipal and residential markets.
"We are thrilled to welcome Highland Park to the LRS family," LRS Managing Partner Joshua Connell said. "Highland Park residents and businesses will benefit from our service efficiency and technology innovation, including our embedded RFID chip technology on every bin to ensure service verification. In regard to organic recycling, we will be providing Highland Park residents the ability to combine food scraps with yard waste in one recycling bin that we turn into compost."
