When & Where
The Resource Center takes resources, both material and human, that society treats as waste, and fosters better ways to utilize them. Our founder and president, Ken Dunn, has made a life and career out of this work for over thirty years.
The Resource Center provides Residential and Commercial Recycling, Urban Agriculture, Food & Organics Composting, Perishable Food Recovery, and Creative Reuse. We operate the largest non-profit recycling firm in the Chicago area. We have recycling drop-off and buy-back centers as well as a mobile buy-back program in which we purchase recyclable materials from public housing residents.
