Brown Commercial Arranges Space for Longtime Client Elgin Recyling 

Brown Commercial Group negotiated the sixth space expansion for Elgin Recycling, a fast-growing, environmentally focused company based in Chicago’s suburban market. Broker Collin Tyrrell worked with president Dan Brown on the 63,800-square-foot industrial lease at 1101 Wesemann Dr. in West Dundee, IL. 

Brown has been a strategic real estate advisor for Elgin Recycling for more than 20 years, working to identify and secure commercial real estate space that supports the company’s recycling and demanufacturing processes for businesses and consumers.  

The newly built space is less than two miles from Elgin Recycling’s headquarters in Gilberts, IL and will be used for the company’s electronics division, which supports reducing electronic waste by disassembling and recycling computer equipment. 

“It is very rewarding to support the growth and success of Elgin Recycling because of their innovative approach and the environmentally focused work they do in reducing the flow of materials into the landfills,” said Brown.
