Chicago Renewable Energy Solutions is a great company to deal with. They are reliable, clean, & responsible. What made Bellwether switch from a big name company was their passion. I recommend CRES to anyone in the industry dealing with used cooking oil. They are a classy 5 star group with a true passion for helping the environment and community.

Vincent Munday, Executive Chef, Bellwether Meeting House & Eatery

Since switching to CRES, we've found them to be very dependable, especially when it comes to collections. Furthermore, we know that our waste is being recycled in a responsible manner that not only benefits the environment but our local community as well. They made it easy to have an impact on these issues while not changing our operation.
