Eco-Friendly Snow & Ice Removal in Chicagoland
We can't keep the snow from falling, but we can minimize its effects.
In Chicago, we know winter snow and ice are inevitable. That's why we approach snow removal safely by pre-treating surfaces before it snows and using eco-friendly ice melt that's much safer for you and your pets.
We offer two snow removal service packages, helping you find the solution that makes the most sense for you and your property.

Snow & Ice Removal by Greenwise
Snow removal is a dirty business. Large snow removal companies generally run it as an emergency response service. That means, they focus on clearing snow after it has accumulated. This reactive approach to snow removal negatively affects our environment. It leads to dumping lots of rock salt and other environmentally damaging materials on top of snow and ice buildup just to get rid of the snow.
When we pre-treat surfaces, our goal is to lighten our footprint, and yours. We pre-treat surfaces frequently, but use less material each time. By applying the ice melt in this way, we avoid dumping a lot of salt on surfaces, thus avoiding adversely impacting your plants. Plus, frequent ice melt prevents snow from building up on driveways, sidewalks and steps, making it safer for you.
What's In Our Ice Melt?
Our environmentally friendly ice melt is easy on your pets’ paws and the environment. A unique blend of chlorides gives our ice melt powerful exothermic and endothermic reactions, which start melting ice and snow more quickly than rock salt while also having a gentler impact on your soil, vegetation, and pets.
The brine created by the chemical reaction lowers the freezing point of the surface where we apply it, which minimizes ice and snow accumulation. The lower sodium content of our ice melt means less corrosive impact on metal, grout, and concrete. Plus, our ice melt resists refreeze without leaving powdery or oily residue.
The ice melt granules are designed with greater surface area than spherical pellets resulting in better surface coverage. While you’re cozy inside, you can rest assured that our ice melt is hard at work. Our product will keep working down to -16 degrees Fahrenheit!

Great job!! Around 9:45 PM last night I heard scraping on my front walk. Checked and saw it was the Zero Tolerance crew hard at work.
