Lakeshore Recycling Systems Inks Exclusive In-Game 'Three-and-Out' Sponsorship With WBBM's Chicago Bears Radio Network

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), Chicagoland's leading independent recycling and waste diversion services provider, today announced it has signed an exclusive in-game marketing sponsorship with WBBM Newsradio's Chicago Bears Radio Network for the 2014 season.

As part of the sponsorship, Bears play-by-play announcer Jeff Joniak will provide live in-game mentions of LRS on every 'three-and-out' stand by the Chicago defense. Additional sponsorship features include: on-air commercials during the game and in pre- and post-game coverage, as well as game-day tickets to support ongoing LRS business development and customer relations initiatives. 

"Nothing epitomizes and galvanizes the vibrant City of Chicago and our expansive collar-county region more than the Chicago Bears and WBBM Newsradio's outstanding coverage week-after-week," said Lakeshore Recycling Systems CEO Alan T. Handley. "We are thrilled to align the LRS brand and reputation with these respected and venerable Chicago institutions, and to join the growing family of WBBM Bears Radio Network sponsors, partners and supporters."

With primary operations in Chicago and its suburbs, LRS is a diversified waste services company providing commercial, residential, recycling and roll-off waste collection and diversion services to more than 6,000 commercial and municipal customers. LRS operates five Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) in Illinois, and is the recent recipient of Chicago Public Schools' coveted Best Partnership Award for suppliers who demonstrate superior commitment to students and a strong track record of collaboration.

In June, LRS acquired Forest View, Ill.-based Heartland Recycling, and as a result, the company now processes more than 1.5 million tons of waste material annually and controls and processes more waste than any other private company in Illinois.
