Lakeshore Recycling Systems: Innovative Recycling Services

When we first started our recycling program with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) in 2016, we had a 6.78% trash diversion rate (recycling stream) with 1,193.41 tons of trash going to landfills.
For 2020 YTD we have a 39.58% trash diversion rate with 432.12 tons of trash going to landfills, a reduction of 63%. We have also dramatically improved our reuse/repurpose efforts of furniture, etc. so that stays out of the trash stream. Here is a video from LRS that we thought we'd share! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDhj1920TlI&feature=emb_err_woyt

Discover LRS' state-of-the-art single-stream recycling facility and how we make a difference to send as little as possible to landfills. From paper, to plast...

We aren’t watering the grass, just winterizing the irrigation system before Thanksgiving! The cold came early this year. We will make sure we don’t cause any ice buildups and if we do the sidewalk surfaces will be treated right away.

The Chicago Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) project to repave State Street between 31st and 35th Streets has begun. While crosswalk area signs are still in place, many of the crosswalk lines have been temporarily removed from the street, which may result in drivers being less aware of crosswalk locations. Pedestrians, please be aware of the change in conditions while this work continues and exercise caution when crossing the street.

The rain held off today for us to celebrate our department's hard work this year. We had a great time grilling out and connecting with one another across all teams! We had a wonderful turnout representing Security Systems Technology, Facilities and Public Safety Administration, Public Safety Department, Environmental Health and Safety, Emergency Management, Utilities and Energy, Office of Campus Energy and Sustainability, Facilities Operations and Maintenance, Planning, Design, and Construction, Canon (Office and Postal Services), ABM/SMITH (Custodial), and Access, Card, and Parking Services (ACaPS).

We just completed a six-week spring project to have over 200 trees trimmed around campus. BrightView Landscaping removed dead and overgrown limbs in order to allow more light to shine throughout campus during the day. The project aided in nighttime safety as well. Removing tree limbs blocking campus exterior lighting and building windows allows for more transparency in the evening. Notice how much brighter and cleaner campus looks next time you’re out and about!

If you notice a large police presence through tomorrow...please note:

Hi all, my friends and I have taken a small initiative towards mental health awareness (Mental Polaroids) and are searching for building a team. So, please fill out the attached form in the link if you’re interested in helping us stand together and spread awareness and voice. Who are We? Mental Polaroids is a group of like-minded students who have taken the initiative to spread awareness of mental health within the student community. Please note:- This is not any Club or Organization; this is a media platform where we will be producing a podcast, videos, and other means of content to promote mental health awareness. https://lnkd.in/e6nfw4A We appreciate any help you can provide.
