Recycling Avenue was launched in 2007 by two physically challenged young adults, Greg Campone & PJ Flaherty,  who wanted to work and make a difference is an organization which helps to provide job opportunities for the physically challenged.

Avenues believed in their idea and provided space to put their into action.  Today, dozens of recycling bins are located in businesses and communities throughout Chicagoland, including Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Buffalo Grove, and Main Township.  Our service is FREE and we do all of the pick-ups.

    Thank you to the more than 130 golfers and tennis players who scored for Avenues at the Park Ridge Country Club on July 21. Special thanks to Chair Steve Wilson and his 30 + committee members, along with Avenues’ volunteers and staff members who helped make the event a “classic” success. They helped raise $30,000 for a wheelchair accessible van that will help transport Avenues’ participants throughout the community. We sincerely thank all of our sponsors, especially MB Financial Bank, who once again was our Eagle Level Corporate Sponsor.
