LRS announces record fifth portable services acquisition in the first quarter of 2021, entering northwest Indiana portable service market with acquisition of Johnson Johns

MORTON GROVE, IL, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), the Midwest’s leading provider of waste, recycling and portable services, today announced a record fifth acquisition of a portable services company in the first quarter of 2021: Johnson Johns, a northwest Indiana leader in portable restroom rentals, septic pumping and grease trap maintenance. Financial terms were not disclosed and the acquisition is effective immediately.

Widely considered the Midwest’s leading provider of portable restroom equipment and service rentals, LRS’ 2021 acquisitions, in addition to Johnson Johns, include: Oregon, Ill.-based Big John; Woodstock, Ill.-based Crown Restrooms/Arrow Septic and Sewer; Janesville, Wisc.-based Ace Portables; and Niles, Mich.- based Joy’s Johns. In January, LRS also acquired one of Chicago’s most respected independent waste haulers, Roy Strom Company.

For more than 15 years, residents and businesses across Lake, La Porte, Marshall, Porter, Starke and St. Joseph counties have turned to Johnson Johns for their sanitation needs. Known for experienced technicians and operations professionals, and service-focused office personnel, Johnson Johns customers can continue to rely on outstanding service and equipment that differentiates it from other portable restroom providers.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join LRS, a company that has proven its Midwest independence, dedication to the customer experience, and to operating at the highest levels of safety and sustainability,” said Johnson Johns Founder Jeff Johnson. “We look forward to LRS continuing the Johnson Johns tradition of delivering exceptional customer service, and anticipate accomplishing great things as LRS continues to build on our legacy.”

LRS Chief Executive Officer Alan T. Handley extended a warm LRS welcome to all Johnson Johns employees and customers ahead of a smooth and seamless integration and commented on the company’s recent acquisitions aimed at independent waste, recycling and portable services providers seeking to join a fast-growing, dynamic platform. With the completion of this acquisition and Michigan-based Joy’s Johns earlier this week, LRS now commands a service area expanding over six states and is well-positioned as the largest portable services company to operate in the greater Midwest.

“Companies like Johnson Johns represent the highest caliber operations within our markets and we are proud that they have joined our rapidly growing LRS family. This acquisition allows LRS to expand our reach deep into the north and northwest Indiana market where we plan on offering our entire suite of service offerings in the very near future,” Handley said. “As LRS continues to expand into new markets, we continue to seek out exceptionally well-managed independent providers like Johnson Johns, who share in our sustainability focus, commitment to safety and to delivering an unmatched customer experience.”

Junk Removal Company COUNT JUNKULA Launches New Website

North Carolina Junk Removal & Cleanout Company Ups Their Game

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Count Junkula, the #1 vampire-themed junk removal service on the planet, has launched a bold new website to bring their business to the next level.

The new website was designed and hosted by Develomark, a pioneering digital marketing agency dedicated to local SEO. Built with growth in mind, the new site focuses on impactful graphics and branding, increased speed for a better user experience, and a more detailed description of each service offered. It was designed to scale and expand at the same rate as the franchise itself. CountJunkula.com also provides a great deal of information to potential investors who may want to start their own, local Count Junkula franchise.

“Our previous website was new but felt dated by current design standards and also wasn’t gaining much ranking traction online,” said co-founder and CEO Jason Tudor. “I really wanted to find a digital marketing agency that specialized in multi-unit home service businesses and Devlomark seemed to fit the bill.” This new partnership was also the perfect opportunity for Count Junkula to improve the photography on their site. As one local business supporting another, they hired Richard Barlow Photography out of their homebase in Raleigh to capture a modern and approachable look to their online images.

Specializing in website design, SEO, and PPC for local businesses, Develomark was eager to work with Count Junkula and help them achieve their goals. “Our partnership with Count Junkula is exciting for several reasons,” said Develomark CEO and owner Ruan Marinho. “We are working at the early stages of a brand that will become the nation's leader in junk removal services. Also, this announces Develomark's entry into Franchise Marketing and development so it's a great partnership for both ends."

In addition to a crisp and streamlined design approach, the SEO and content teams at Develomark analyzed the wide variety of services offered and created a site layout that would highlight each to attract online searchers. “The site is much easier to navigate than before and displays more information about all the unique services that people may not have even realized that we offer,” said Tudor. “From specific types of junk we remove, to light demolition, to dumpster rental services…it’s all there in detail.”

Tudor is particularly excited about a special feature that was missing from the old website. “I think the new website will help customers get in touch with us faster. The new, 24/7 live chat feature allows customers to have their questions answered at any time, day or night. We also have 24/7 phone support if they prefer to call in.”

Count Junkula and Develomark are looking forward to the successes of this new partnership. “Develomark has been a pleasure to work with. From the ease of communication, staying on deadline and budget, and creative vision, It has been the ideal experience,” added Tudor. To learn more about Count Junkula, call (919) 642-1174 or visit CountJunkula.com.

Count Junkula is a professional junk removal and cleanout company for residential and commercial clients in North Carolina. Locally-owned and family-operated, Count Junkula strives to be eco-friendly and green, recycling and donating whenever possible. They offer free estimates, commercial rates, and franchise opportunities.

Microvi Announces Unprecedented Results for its Chromium Removal Technology

Microvi MNE successfully removes chromium from contaminated water

Microvi MNE successfully removes chromium from contaminated water.

The results of work completed demonstrated a combination of efficacy and cost reduction that has not been demonstrated with any technology on the market today.

HAYWARD, CA, USA, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Microvi announced today the successful application of their MicroNiche Engineering (MNE) platform technology for chromium removal. The work, conducted under a National Institute of Health grant, demonstrated a significant potential cost savings in capital, operations and maintenance costs compared to conventional treatment technologies such as ion exchange and reduction-coagulation-filtration. The combination of efficacy and cost reduction has not been demonstrated with any technology on the market today.

“Applying our expertise in water purification solutions to address the worldwide challenge of chromium contamination demonstrates the versatility of our MNE platform technology,” said Ameen Razavi, Chief Innovation Officer of Microvi. “This work allowed us to continue to push down treatment costs while maintaining exceptional treatment performance.”

Chromium in water stems from both natural sources as well as a variety of industrial activities including paints, metal production and manufacturing processes. Its presence has significant impacts on public health as it is a carcinogen and can lead to reproductive harm. The widespread issue of chromium contamination affects millions of people worldwide. In a study conducted by the Environmental Working Group, 218 million Americans throughout all 50 states were found to drink chromium-polluted tap water.

While the current federal standard for total chromium in drinking water is 100 parts per billion (ppb), this regulation is under review. Some areas, like California, a region particularly impacted by naturally occurring chromium, have proposed limits as low as 10 ppb. This study showed that Microvi MNE successfully removes hexavalent chromium from drinking water to levels of 5 ppb, meeting both current and potential future regulatory limits.

By using novel biocatalytic composites (MNE biocatalysts) to intensify and extend the life of biological processes, the Microvi MNE technology maintains a controlled population of microorganisms at a much higher density than existing technologies. The design and operation of the systems are simple with no complex process controls and do not produce additional solids, reducing energy and carbon requirements.

Microvi’s water technologies have been successfully applied in a number of applications across the water, wastewater and bio-based chemicals sectors. Along with a project focused on tertiary ammonia removal completed at Thames Water in the UK, the technology was selected for the first full scale wastewater sidestream treatment project in the San Francisco Bay, and for nitrate removal from drinking water at Cucamonga Valley Water District.

About Microvi
Microvi is a transformative biology company based in the San Francisco Bay Area that delivers next-generation biotechnologies for the water, wastewater, bio-based chemicals, biofuels and biopharma industries. Microvi offers commercial technologies around the world to reduce waste, increase productivity and provide disruptive economics across the value chain. Learn more at www.microvi.com.

Green Energy Biofuel Adds Landfill-free Recycling, Cleaning Services for Industrial Customers

GEB now offers tank cleaning as a new service to industrial-scale clients.

Grease hauling Green Energy Biofuel vacuum trucks South Carolina DERA grant

As GEB grows, the company has added vehicles to its fleet to keep up with new business.

The once-small company has grown up and is securing industrial-scale customers for all their environmentally responsible disposal needs.

One new, popular service we offer is tank cleaning. We give the customer a rebate for every pound of grease we recover from their tanks.”

— BioJoe Renwick, Co-founder and Owner, Green Energy Biofuel

WINNSBORO, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Green Energy Biofuel (GEB), the one-stop-shop for all organic recycling needs big and small, continues to grow. The South Carolina-based company began more than a decade ago as a local grease collector and biodiesel producer, but since then GEB has evolved into a valuable provider of numerous recycling services to some of the nation’s largest industrial food and agribusiness factories. Its service area spans from the Great Lakes to the Deep South, and from the Carolina coast to the Mississippi River.

GEB’s expansion into new services is spurring this growth, which is supported by additional personnel, fleet vehicles and account generation. Once focused on used cooking oil (UCO) collection from local establishments and small-scale biodiesel production, GEB can process 200,000 gallons of liquid waste material per day at its expanded and retooled processing complex in Aiken, South Carolina. In addition to recycling various greases, GEB’s facility recently received a much-desired wastewater permit.

“By the end of April, we’ll be going full bore on processing wastewater for ourselves, and for other companies,” says BioJoe Renwick, GEB co-founder and owner.

In addition, GEB recently bought a compost facility, ReSoil, in order to provide its industrial-scale clients landfill-free disposal options geared toward today’s stringent environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria.

The company has hired a 16-year veteran from the pressure-washing and hydro-cleaning profession, Freddie Reynders, opening up a host of new services GEB now offers its clients. Reynders also heads up GEB’s service division, providing much-needed leadership and experience.

With this added feature, GEB is now able to professionally service hoods, or ventilation systems for food-frying businesses of all sizes—from restaurants to industrial-scale food processing facilities. The company also provides line-jetting of clogged drains in restaurants, whether kitchen sinks or floor drains. In addition, when performing oil recovery from grease traps, GEB can pressure wash those traps and recover every ounce of recyclable material.

“One new, popular service we offer is tank cleaning,” Renwick says. “We go inside people’s tanks, pressure wash and clean them, and remove the waste inside. Then we bring back that waste we recovered from their tanks to our Aiken plant, where we process and refine it. We give the customer a rebate for every pound of grease we recover from their tanks. This gives them a reduced rate for cleaning and disposal, and we get waste we can purify and sell.”

These tanks aren’t small, either. Some are hundreds of thousands of gallons in size. “We’re able to provide services at rates far better than our competitors because we’re 100 percent vertically integrated,” Renwick says. “We can clean tanks and take waste for a lower price than anyone else can.”

To exemplify GEB’s rapid growth, the company has added more than 200 new service accounts in the first quarter of 2021. It has also hired four new people, bringing the number of green, sustainable jobs created by GEB to 24 strong.

“We’re on fire with sales and service, and generating new accounts,” Renwick says. “This includes UCO collections as well as industrial-scale waste processors.”

In South Carolina alone, GEB has signed on eight new counties, creating recycling programs for UCO where none existed before. GEB provides a drop-off container to a centralized location where residents can bring their UCO for recycling.

“We’ve hired specialists in various fields, a full staff dedicated to industrial sales, school and municipal sales, restaurant sales, and southeastern account sales,” Renwick says.

New services, new accounts and additional personnel mean GEB must also expand its fleet of service trucks to accommodate new business.

“This fast-paced growth requires additional fleet vehicles, such as another 2,500-gallon Kenworth vacuum truck, an Isuzu custom pressure-washing truck to provide drain-line cleaning, steam-surface cleaning, and disinfecting services,” Renwick says.

Most recently, GEB bought another Isuzu 18-foot stake-body truck with a lift gate, dedicated to setting up 20 new accounts per day. The company is utilizing grant funding from the U.S. EPA’s Diesel Emissions Reduction Act through the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to replace old, dirty, inefficient vehicles with cleaner, newer, more efficient ones. In total, GEB owns or operates a fleet of 14 tankers and tractor trucks, five vacuum trucks, four service trucks and eight railcars. It operates out of four locations with a reach virtually anywhere east of the Mississippi River and south of the Great Lakes.

A company like GEB doesn’t need millions of dollars to grow sustainably, acquire large customers and be a success. “If you set big goals and work hard to achieve them, and treat your customers honestly, fairly and with respect, anyone can do this,” Renwick says. “We are living proof.”

OptiRTC launches new website; platform highlights solutions to create healthier communities and water supplies

Leading provider of cloud-based stormwater management brings new, outcome-focused website to market

The website is a reflection of our core values of Community, Resilience, Environmental Stewardship and Innovation. It’s all about the great outcomes we deliver to communities.”

— David Rubinstein, CEO, OptiRTC

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — OptiRTC (https://optirtc.com), a leader in forecast-based control of distributed stormwater infrastructure through cloud-based solutions, has re-designed and re-launched a new website to provide a comprehensive, educational overview on how to create healthier communities and water supplies in the face of increasing threats of flooding across the country.

OptiRTC CEO David Rubinstein characterizes the company’s new website as “Opti reimagined,” adding that a key objective in upgrading the company’s website is to inform, educate and deliver outcome-focused content. “We are dedicated to delivering the outstanding environmental and economic outcomes that our communities deserve. Our world needs to move faster to succeed against the environmental challenges that face us, and technology helps us get there,” he said. “Our website shows how communities can achieve a healthier and safer environment.”

OptiRTC worked with Boston-based consulting firm MAGE LLC in supervising the new site, which is designed to be informative but also reflective of Opti's values-based mission.

Jeffrey S. Davis, Chief Marketing Officer for Opti, said, “People, community safety and the environment are what’s important to Opti. Our new design proactively shares customer stories and resources in a more accessible, user-friendly format.” The site shows the benefits of Opti technology through visuals, and illuminates the cost-effectiveness and benefits of the solutions. Viewers can download case studies and click on icons to easily learn about the Opti solutions that result in cleaner water and healthier communities. Visitors can learn through videos and webinars such as “The Journey to a Smart Watershed” and “How to Manage Watershed on the Cloud,” as well as accessing the library of Opti newsletters.

“The website is a reflection of our core values of Community, Resilience, Environmental Stewardship and Innovation,” said Rubinstein. “It’s all about the great outcomes we deliver to communities. We strive for healthier environments and safer communities, which results in happier people.”

And the need for information and these services is increasingly critical in light of today’s weather patterns. “Flooding is a big problem in America,” said Davis. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported a record breaking 22 major weather events in 2020 totaling $95 million in losses. Stormwater management represents one of the most pervasive environmental issues in the United States. Due to shifts in the frequency, duration and intensity of rainfall events, increasing economic development and urbanization cities, communities and businesses are faced with growing challenges around flood risk management, water quality, protection of property and public health and safety. The benefits of stormwater management include water conservation, improved water quality, asset performance monitoring, erosion control, flood mitigation and combined sewer overflow mitigation.

Opti’s leading technology optimizes the performance of existing facilities by leveraging forecast information with onsite sensors; allowing adaptive use of the full storage volume available to mimic flow patterns that existed prior to land development. The technology can be adapted for new and existing infrastructure.

“We are very pleased with the look and feel of the new site,” Rubinstein said. “And importantly, we believe that our website serves as a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about what we all can do to create healthier communities.”

About OptiRTC
Opti is the world's leading and largest provider of cloud-based stormwater management. Opti enables communities to continuously improve stormwater management by delivering real-time visibility, adaptively controlling assets, and supporting smart city initiatives. Opti manages over 160 commercial deployments and over 100 million gallons of stormwater storage. Opti’s solutions have been approved by regulatory authorities including the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program and its member states, and the Washington State Department of Ecology TAPE program.

Fine Tune Partners with MH Equipment to Manage and Optimize Key Indirect Expense Categories

Ongoing expense management program saves MH Equipment 58% on Waste Disposal Costs and $91,000 on Uniform Agreement Buyout

It’s become clear since partnering with Fine Tune that effective management of these burdensome tail spend categories requires deep expertise and vigilance.”

— Brad Barrow, CFO, MH Equipment

CHICAGO, IL, US, March 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fine Tune, a provider of indirect spend management services, today reported results from negotiations of more favorable uniform rental and waste disposal agreements—despite preexisting confines of set, remaining contract terms—for MH Equipment, a construction, janitorial, and material handling equipment dealership with 33 locations across the US.

Uniform Rental
In 2014, MH Equipment partnered with Fine Tune to strategically manage their uniform rental program.

A few years into the partnership, MH Equipment acquired new locations serviced by a different uniform rental supplier than legacy MH Equipment sites. The legacy sites were previously included in a national uniform rental program already negotiated and managed by Fine Tune.

The inherited uniform supplier agreement included a remaining four-year term on a “boiler plate” local agreement, but MH Equipment’s goal was to immediately move the acquired sites to the already-managed national agreement and re-dress the employees in their approved uniform image.

To protect MH Equipment from exorbitant costs related to the pre-term switch, Fine Tune began with an analysis of the inherited uniform rental agreement and program, revealing a gross miscalculation of liability in the supplier’s initial buyout offer.

To start, of the five sites acquired, Fine Tune found only one was listed on the inherited agreement, though the initial buyout offer was calculated to include all five sites.

It was also found that a majority of the acquired sites’ rented uniforms had been in use since 2008 at the start of the agreement. Fine Tune knew this meant the individual liability for most of the uniforms had already been paid through weekly rental fees, and the uniforms were not in a state rendering them particularly valuable.

With these findings—only one of five sites written into the agreement and the aged state of the uniforms—along with a concern for fairness, Fine Tune calculated an equitable buyout based on:

• Expert industry knowledge of fair market purchase prices coupled with consideration for the uniforms’ aged state
• An offer to purchase all uniforms in service, but at fair market pricing, with the alternative being a steadfast approach of only paying a buyout for the one site written into the agreement

The Fine Tune-calculated and ultimately accepted buyout amount came in $91K less than the original offer, increasing MH Equipment’s bottom line.

Additional benefits included MH Equipment keeping and now owning their uniforms due to paying for them via buyout, and a switch four years early from the inherited sites’ supplier agreement to the national uniform rental program already in place for the other MH Equipment sites—resulting in additional cost avoidance and savings due to more competitive rates and terms.

Waste Disposal
Fine Tune and MH Equipment began partnering on the management of MH Equipment’s waste disposal category in 2018.

Due to the decentralized nature of MH Equipment’s waste disposal program—and often, waste disposal programs in general—most sites’ agreements necessitated one-by-one set up.

Using their dedicated expertise, Fine Tune got to work organizing and tracking the mix of waste disposal agreements currently in place and their wide-ranging terms and pricing (i.e. the baseline).

While analyzing each waste disposal agreement, Fine Tune found that up to a few years’ term remained on the majority of MH Equipment sites’ agreements, and several of the sites’ suppliers faced little to no regional competition.

However, unphased by this sub-optimal negotiations landscape, Fine Tune put their proficiency to work and negotiated vastly improved waste disposal agreements with both improved pricing and terms.

In the end, MH Equipment sites’ newly negotiated waste disposal agreements produced an average savings of 58% from baseline.

“It’s become clear since partnering with Fine Tune that effective management of these burdensome tail spend categories requires deep expertise and vigilance,” stated Brad Barrow, CFO, MH Equipment. “And Fine Tune’s competency for both simply cannot be replicated—they’ll find and secure savings that could never be achieved left to one’s own devices, especially when constraints such as remaining term are present.”
