Johnson WasteCollection Event Flyer EN 2BUFFALO GROVE – To give families an opportunity to clean out unwanted items from their homes safely and efficiently, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) is inviting residents to participate in her all-in-one waste collection event in Waukegan.

In partnership with State Rep. Rita Mayfield (D-Waukegan), Waukegan Township Supervisor Marc L. Jones, Lake County Sheriff John Idleburg and the city of Waukegan, Johnson is hosting an all-in-one waste collection event by providing shredding equipment, electronic recycling and safely disposing prescription medications.

“With so many fantastic partners, this is a true community-wide event,” Johnson said. “By providing families with access to shredding equipment and other recycling, we are taking steps to promote a cleaner future within our region.”

Residents in need of additional information are encouraged to call Johnson’s Buffalo Grove office at 847-672-6201.

Purple SproutThe event will take place Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10 - 11 a.m. at Purple Sprout Conscious Organics, located at 364 Lexington Drive in Buffalo Grove.

“Hosting last month’s Coffee & Connect at a locally owned business was a huge success—it offered residents a convenient opportunity to chat with me, and it gave one of my favorite small businesses a boost,” Johnson said. “I’m hoping this month’s meeting at Purple Sprout is just as beneficial.”

Each monthly Coffee & Connect serves as an open forum for community members to engage in informal conversations with the senator about issues facing the region and state.

Purple Sprout Conscious Organics, owned by Irina Kuznetsova and her husband Karim Raimbekov, opened in 2015. The shop offers healthy snacks, home-delivered meals and holistic health coaching services.

Energy Transition Act FBSPRINGFIELD – Following the Illinois General Assembly’s passage of a comprehensive energy policy overhaul package, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) said it’s a sign Illinois is finally stepping up to protect the communities most vulnerable to pollution and climate change:

“We’re already seeing the catastrophic effects of climate change right here in Lake County: heat waves, more intense storms and rising water levels on Lake Michigan are threatening households across the community. Low-income neighborhoods and neighborhoods of color have borne the brunt of air and water pollution for decades, and their health has suffered.

“But thanks to Senate Bill 2408, our future looks brighter. Illinois now has a plan to transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050 in a way that protects jobs and creates new opportunities for Black and Brown Illinoisans looking to enter the green energy industry.

“Good energy policy is about people, not fossil fuel companies. I’m proud to support this groundbreaking green energy plan and help Illinois move forward into a better future.”
