City of Jonesville: Garbage, Recycling, Bulk Collection Program

LRS has been the village’s exclusive residential service provider for curbside waste, recycling and Bulk for Jonesville homes.


Each home can elect to receive two carts, one for waste and one for recycling. There is no cost for the carts. Carts are available 96-gallon size.


Garbage, recycling and bulk item shall be placed curbside the day of collection no later than 6 a.m. to ensure they are collected.


Waste Collection

Waste collection will continue Tuesday on a weekly basis.


In addition to curbside waste collection, LRS offers a variety of other waste services.

Bulk Items / Excess Garbage

Bulk items will be collected if each item is under 50 pounds. Items must be placed Curbside the day of collection. Resident will be billed separately.


For health and safety reasons, mattresses and box springs are requested to be wrapped in plastic to be collected at the curb/street side. Plastic mattress wrap can be found at local grocery stores, hardware stores, storage and moving outlets. If using loose plastic, it must be completely taped and secured on all corners with no exposure to the mattress.


If you are looking to dispose of a toilet, we do ask, for safety of the team due to the weight, for the item to please be separated (i.e. the bowl and the tank pulled apart in two parts).


For items that do not fit the above criteria, LRS will provide service as needed, scheduled at an agreed upon per-yard basis. This service will be upon request, and billed separately.

Additional Cart(s)

Additional waste carts are available for a small monthly rental fee. Please contact LRS to do so. Michigan Jackson location phone – 888-788-9097

Recycling Collection

LRS will provide residents with one recycling cart that will be collected weekly on Wednesday. Residents may place out as many recyclable items as they wish each week for collection. Recyclable material that won’t fit in recycling carts may be placed at the side of the cart. Larger or bulky boxes must be broken down before collection.
