Chicago Paper and Plastic RecyclingChicago IL Recycling – Paper & Plastic

Quincy Recycle’s Alsip, IL facility provides B2B recycling services to the Chicago area and beyond.

The facility’s 28 loading docks, quick access to rail, barge, I-57, and I-294 ideally position it to handle high-volume recycling. A major upgrade to our scale, staging, and loading areas has greatly increased efficiency and decreased loading times.

The 56,000 square foot plant buys, sells, and brokers all kinds of paper, plastic, and food waste.

Manufacturers throughout the Chicago metro area rely on us to help them with: paper and plastic recycling, food waste recycling, and metal recycling.

We also work with paper shredding companies to recycle their shredded paper, and with our recycling peers as well, finding ways to collaborate where possible.

cardboard (OCC)
