HAMPSHIRE, Ill. (June 20, 2024) — Midwest Companies, an Illinois-based sustainable waste management company, announces its newly-built construction and demolition recycling facility in Hampshire, Illinois. Midwest Companies is a parent company operating a family of sustainable waste management brands, including Midwest Material Management (MMM), a business that provides demolition, recycling and industrial waste disposal for the construction and railroad industries. The new facility expands MMM’s existing nonhazardous industrial waste recycling and disposal services and allows the organization to meet growing demand.  

“Midwest Material Management has provided construction waste management solutions for more than 30 years, and our new 10-acre facility in Hampshire allows us to better serve our construction and railroad company partners,” says Steve Berglund, president and founder of Midwest Companies. “With the Midwest family of brands, we’re uniquely positioned to provide innovative end-to-end disposal services that allow our customers to operate more sustainably and efficiently."

Until the spring of 2022, Midwest Material Management accepted and processed all nonhazardous construction and demolition debris at its recycling facility in East Dundee, Illinois. The Hampshire facility moved and is currently located at 370 South Brier Hill Road. The new facility includes 26,000 square feet dedicated to sorting waste and separating recyclables from nonrecyclable material. Construction and railroad companies can deposit waste and obtain industrial dumpsters or opt for MMM’s pick up and collection services. 

MMM’s new location is a LEED-certified and has a history of sustainable leadership across its family of brands. Steve Berglund was named a 2023 Notable Leader in Sustainability by Crain’s Chicago Business, an honor recognizing the leadership of Midwest Companies and its subsidiaries. One of its sub-brands is TiEnergy, a company that recycles and repurposes retired railroad ties. The ties are ground into TIEROC, a proprietary aggregate substitute that’s in high demand for landfill operations. The new MMM center in Hampshire will accept railroad ties and other wood waste, like other Midwest Company facilities, and give it new life as TIEROC.  As a tribute to its sustainable operations, the Hampshire facility will be enclosed by a custom fence made of retired railroad ties.
