C&D Recycling

Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling

TKG specializes in organizing and recycling construction and demolition (C&D) debris that normally ends up in landfills. C&D recycling and reusing these materials has become a huge part of waste management in recent decades. C & D materials have been identified and historically recognized as one of the largest components of the solid waste stream in the United States. 

Our desire to make an impact in this area has played a major role in TKG Environmental Services establishing our own independent material recovery recycling center. Servicing clients all across Northern Illinois and Southeast Wisconsin.  TKG Recycling is the first, and only, licensed and operating C&D recycling facility in Lake County, Illinois. 

Skip the lines at your local dump, with our fast, convenient and centrally located recycling facility.  

TKG is committed to preserving tomorrow!

Dumpster rental is one of the three key parts of our business. We are committed to finding appropriate recycling avenues for over 75% of the construction and demolition waste that we take in through our Waukegan dumpster rental operations. There is a broad range of materials that are accepted for the C&D recycling process, including:

  • Brick, Concrete, and other masonry materials
  • Rock
  • Wood
  • Roofing Shingles
  • Wall Coverings
  • Plaster
  • Drywall
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Metals
  • Wires
  • Plastics and/or Cardboard

Once properly sorted, much of the common construction and demolition waste materials can be re-purposed into other construction-related products. C&D recycling provides two key benefits to our local and the broader global community. First, proper recycling saves limited and expensive landfill space for materials that have no known recyclable purpose. Second, recycling reduces the need to extract raw materials from the environment.
