About TKG Environmental Services Group, LLC
TKG Environmental Services Group is an environmental waste hauling and recycling company with core services in dumpster rental, power sweeping and construction / demolition recycling.
TKG is unique from our competitors as we operate one of the few construction and demolition waste recycling facilities of its kind in the Northeast Illinois and Southeast Wisconsin metro areas. Our plant has the capability to recycle more than 75% of the debris that comes into the yard. Materials recycled or transferred include wood, metals, asphalt shingles, aggregates and cardboard. Much of this material is reused in new products such as mulch and the manufacture of new metals.
TKG Environmental Services Group acts as a true partner with companies that want to minimize their environmental impact. TKG truly wants to “Improve your Environment.”
Recycling and Disposal
Recycling and reusing C&D debris materials has become a huge part of waste management. This is why TKG operates its own independent recycling center. We are committed to finding appropriate avenues for much of the C&D Waste that we take in through our dumpster rental operations or from third part customers including, residents, contractors, other roll-off companies and hauling companies.
What is Construction and Demolition Debris
Per the Environmental Protection Agency, C& D debris is non-hazardous, uncontaminated materials resulting from construction, remodeling, repair or demolition of utilities, structures and roads. The waste primarily includes:
- Brick, Concrete and other masonry materials
- Roofing Shingles
- Wall Coverings
- Plumbing fixtures
- Plastics and/or Cardboard
*Not all these materials are recyclable or reusable
When properly sorted, much of the common C&D waste materials can be re-purposed into other construction related products. C&D recycling provides two key benefits for our community. First, proper recycling saves precious landfill space for materials that have no known secondary use, which keeps disposal prices down. Secondly, recycling these materials reduces the need to extract raw materials from the environment.
When you bring your C&D waste to TKG Environmental Services Group, you can rest assured that as much of your waste will be diverted from the landfill as possible.
Below is a partial list of what CANNOT be accepted at the recycling facility:
- Any Hazardous Waste
- Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
- Medical Waste
- Animal Waste or Parts
- Paint or Paint Cans
- Fluorescent Light bulbs
- Mattresses and Box Springs
We are proud members of the CDRA.
