Blue Star Recyclers and Rotary Launch a New Service Called EZ Electronics Recycling in NW Chicago

Today was a big day for our recycling operations in Chicagoland.

After almost a year of collaborative work between Blue Star Recyclers and Rotary District 6440 clubs, today we launched a new service called EZ Electronics Recycling, which provides at home pick up service for residents. Now Chicago NW suburban residents can receive Blue Star’s certified electronics recycling service at their doorstep.

Seven Rotary clubs donated funds to help Blue Star purchase a new van to launch the service, including Glenview Sunrise, Dundee, Buffalo Grove, Barrington Breakfast, Lake Zurich, Libertyville, and Long Grove/Kildeer/Hawthorn Woods.

Special thank go to Suzanne Lyhus with the Glenview Sunrise Rotary Club, who was instrumental in coordinating Rotary’s involvement in the project. We also wish to thank current Rotary District 6440 Governor Suzanne Gibson and incoming District 6440 Governor Lyle Staub, who actively supported the project within their districts and respective clubs.

COVID-19 Update

As COVID-19 continues to affect all of us, creating and maintaining safe employment for adults with disAbilities and providing e-Steward® certified recycling remain our core priorities.

Blue Star Recyclers cares for our mission, employees, clients, and friends very deeply and will continue our mission within modified operations.
