The City of Wheaton selected Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) as its exclusive waste and recycling hauler for all residential homes; a contract which went into effect on October 1, 2016.
Lakeshore Recycling Systems is Chicagoland’s leading independent recycling and waste diversion services provider. Lakeshore Recycling Systems does not own a landfill and is committed to raising awareness for a more environmentally sustainable and scalable business model that fuels the circular economy.
Observed holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day.
If a holiday falls on a Saturday, that actual day is the observed holiday. If a holiday falls on a Sunday, then Monday would be the observed day off. Residential pickup is behind one day throughout the week of the holiday.
In order to verify service, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips are added to the current recycling carts and new garbage carts. Lakeshore Recycling Systems’ RFID technology implementation will track customer pickups and bill residents without the cumbersome act of buying stickers.
With the implementation of RFID chips, garbage stickers will not be needed for weekly service. Residents will be charged a reduced rate for each garbage and recycling pickup.
As a new service offering, Wheaton residents now have the availability to include food scraps (organics) with their yard waste. Stickers for this service can be purchased at a reduced price of $2.75 per sticker.
Stickers will be required for electronics, excess garbage and bulk items.
