Chicago Logistic Service understands the benefits of Recycling

Not only is reycling beneficial to the environment, but we also believe that it turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. For this reason, we have partnered with The Environmentasl Defenders of Mchenry County and serve as their warehouse base of operations. We  donate over $1,000 in labor and trucking services monthly to recycling.

Environmental Defenders of McHenry County Seeking Support to Reopen Styrofoam Recycling Sites - September 23, 2016:

In July of 2016, the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County reluctantly ended their Styrofoam Recycling program and closed their many drop-off sites.  The increased popularity of the program resulted in rising costs due to greater and greater quantites of collected material. Financial resources are still needed to provide transportation and labor getting foam to and from collection sites, once they are reestablished.  For this reason, the Defenders just launched a fundraising campaign called, "Cloud Based Styrofoam".  They are seeking donations to fully fund three to five years of the collection program, to reopen local sites and to expand efforts into neighboring communities.  Read more about the campaign at Generosity.com or by clicking this link:  https://goo.gl/ygPa6s

If you have questions, please contact the Environmental Defenders office at 815-338-0393 or Ken Santowski directly at 847-910-2985.
