Chicago Paper and Plastic Recycling

Major Upgrade to Chicago-area Plant

We’re hearing freight drivers are extremely happy with the improvements to our Chicago-area plant. Why?

Easier and quicker scaling and unloading due to a major upgrade to our Alsip, IL facility.

Alsip Il Driver SignageThe two key factors:

  1. A new drive-on, drive-off scale
  2. A vastly larger staging and unloading area

Where previously drivers had to back off after weighing in, now there’s a clear, direct path to a drive-on, drive-off scale.

Recycling Scale in Alsip, ILOnce off the scale, drivers are in a large, paved staging area able to handle several tractor-trailers preparing to unload.

From there it’s a direct path to the 27 dock doors available for loading and unloading.

Quincy Recycle purchased the land adjacent to our loading area and created a wide, open, and paved area for the scale and staging.

This investment in our paper and plastic recycling facility in Chicago is part of a continuous improvement program. We look for ways to improve efficiencies and reduce friction. This means increased profits for our suppliers, customers, freight partners, and ourselves. A true win-win for all involved.
