ecoandersonvilleStreet side recycling…a staple across both coasts that has somehow managed to allude Chicago, the purportedly “greenest” city in the Midwest.  But slacking city  trends aren’t stopping individual communities from taking action.

On November 1st, 2009, Andersonville is literally rolling out a new program that will install recycling bins on its busiest street corners. This hustling and bustling neighborhood is already home to some of the most successful and diverse local businesses in Chicago. With Green Sky,  The Galleria, Green Genes, and more, Andersonville is giving the city’s greening efforts a run for their money.

Sprout Chicago would like to proudly salute the Andersonville Development Corporation and the neighborhood’s residents for taking up their own action!

To learn more about this endeavor take a peek at Edgewater’s Community Buzz Blog and the Eco-Andersonville website.
