Village of Clarendon Hills

Village of Clarendon Hills Waste, Recycling and Yard Waste Collection Program

Beginning on April 1, 2021, LRS will be the new residential waste, recycling and organics hauler for the Village of Clarendon Hills.  We could not be more eager and excited to provide Clarendon Hills residents with Chicagoland’s best and most reliable hauling services.

We know that Clarendon Hills residents have high standards when it comes to their weekly waste and recycling service.  Our drivers, customer service and dispatchers are excited to get started.

CART Service

Beginning on March 22, 2021, residents will be delivered new LRS waste and recycling carts.  If you didn’t select a particular sized cart during the enrollment period, you will receive a 95-gallon cart for waste, and a 95-gallon cart for recycling.  If these sizes do not fit your needs, you may switch out the carts for another size (95-gallon, 65-gallon and 35-gallon sizes are available for both waste and recycling.  Switch-outs will start in the third week of April.

Your service day may have changed from its current day.  Please see the inset map to determine whether or not you have a new service day.  As has been the case in the past, your waste and recycling will be collected on the same day, as is the case for your new food waste service.  Separate trucks, of course.  We strongly advise that your carts are out for service between 7PM the night before service, and 6AM the day of service.  Collection will start no earlier than 7AM, and end by 5PM each service day.

Waste Collection

Waste Collection

Residents will be allowed to put out one ‘bulk’ item for collection each week.  Those items must be 50lbs or less, and allowable in Illinois landfills.  For additional bags or bulk items, a refuse sticker must be attached to each bag / item in order to be collected.  For larger or heavier items, please call LRS at 844.NEED.LRS, or email us at to schedule service.  Stickers may be purchased at the same retailers they have always been available at.

Mattresses that are put or for collection will need to be wrapped in plastic.  This step will help keep our drivers safe from harmful residues or bed bugs.

Recycling Collection


Clarendon Hills residents are allowed to put out as much single-stream recyclable material for collection as they would like.  Unlike your waste service, additional items that do not fit in your recycling container will not require stickers to be collected.  (A list of the most current single-stream definitions will be on each cart.)

Recycle Tips

  • Recyclable plastic items are #1 – #7 except #6.
  • Recycling materials should be loose and not bagged. If you must use a bag, it needs to be transparent. Black bags will be considered contaminated.
  • Containers that have previously stored liquid or food should be emptied. Food and liquid containers do not have to be rinsed unless it was previously filled with a heavy substance. Examples of heavy substance products include tomato paste, peanut butter and vegetable oil.
  • Lids and caps from plastic bottles and glass jars is preferred to remain intact prior to recycling.
  • To limit the amount of space used, break down any cardboard boxes into pieces.
  • The following items are NOT recyclable although they are made from paper, plastic and cardboard:
    • Pizza boxes
    • Styrofoam
    • Paper plates
    • Plastic cups (i.e. Solo cups)
    • Paper towels
    • Plastic grocery bags
Yard Waste Collection


During October and November there is free yard waste collection available to residents of Clarendon Hills. Yard waste containers do not need stickers when used for leaf collection and yard waste. Residents will be able to set out unlimited amounts of stickered brown kraft bags filled with grass clippings.  Bundled twigs, branches and sticks will also be taken as long as they do not exceed 4’ in length and 18” in diameter.

There is free Christmas tree collection during the month of January.

Stickers may be purchased at the same retailers where they are currently purchased.


The Village of Clarendon Hills and LRS are extremely pleased to offer Clarendon Hills residents the ability to put out organic waste/food waste for collection each week.  No carts will be needed.

Instead, residents may simply mix organic / food waste with grass clippings in stickered brown kraft bags.  This is a seasonal option, which will run from April through November each year.

Residents may also use their own carts/cans for this service, as long as they do not exceed 35-gallons in size, and can be easily dumped in our trucks.



For larger clean-out or remolding projects, please call LRS to set up special services. With over 20 years of roll-off and commercial waste experience, we guarantee service operations will be timely and above expectations. From rear loading containers, to roll-off containers, to compactors, we will work with you to select an appropriate dumpster so that your project continues to run smoothly.
