Recycle for a Reason: Little City
APRIL 2, 2018

It’s official! Spring has sprung. We don’t know about you, but we can hardly believe it’s already the beginning of April. One of our favorite parts about this time of year (besides hoping that Chicago’s weather will start changing) is announcing our next Recycle for a Reason candidate. This quarter, we are proud to be raising money for Little City, an organization that serves children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

How Little City Started & What It Does Today

Little City was started 59 years ago when a small group of parents dreamed of a unique and revolutionary environment for their children who “experts” thought should be institutionalized. Eventually, this little group established themselves as Little City, and today they assist hundreds of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities!

Little City not only provides programs in vocational training, employment placement, foster care, adoption and health/wellness for their clients, but also recreational and therapeutic activities. In fact, Little City runs a 56-acre therapeutic community location in Palatine, an office in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood, two adult service centers, 13 adult community homes and a children’s group home.

How You Can Help By Recycling

If you’re a customer of ours, you know the drill! Each quarter, we collect used toners, old electronics and flattened cardboard as we drop off office supply orders. If you are not a customer but a supporter of Little City, don’t worry! You can participate as well. We encourage you to drop off your recyclables at our warehouse. We’re open 9-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Our collection period for Little City will run until June 30, 2018. Feel free to drop off as many items on our Acceptable Recyclable Items list as possible. Every bit counts!
