CHICAGO, June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), the Midwest’s leading independent recycling and waste diversion provider, today announced it has been named Chicago’s 37th fastest growing company on the prestigious Crain’s Fast 50; the announcement was made Friday, June 21, at the 2019 Crain’s Fast 50 Awards luncheon.

The respected annual ranking recognizes the region’s best and most innovative companies with winning business strategies and substantial year-over-year revenue growth. Lakeshore, the only waste services company named to the list, was ranked based on its 224 percent five-year revenue growth rate from 2013 to 2018, and verified by Crain’s.

“We are honored to be ranked on the Fast 50, and thank the editors at Crain’s for this tremendous recognition,” said LRS Chief Executive Officer Alan T. Handley. “Lakeshore succeeds and differentiates by successfully disrupting and challenging the status quo in nearly every aspect of the waste and recycling industry. Our success would not be possible without the passion and dedication of our more than 900 employees who work hard around the clock to deliver safe, innovative and sustainable waste solutions.”

Lakeshore’s profitable circular business model is centered on diverting more waste from landfills than any competitor. The company optimizes operational efficiency with strategic investments in sophisticated AI-infused equipment, and coupled with experienced line workers, is able to divert and reuse more than 40 percent of the inbound municipal solid waste it collects.
