Village of Elmwood Park Residential Waste and Recycling Services
Beginning May 1, 2019, Village of Elmwood Park residents will notice a new hauler providing waste, recycling and yard waste services. That company: Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), a local hauler that has been servicing Chicagoland for nearly 20 years.
The transition of services will begin in late April, when residents will notice a waste cart delivered to the curbside of their homes. Carts will be the same size that have been used in the past.
What is Changing?
In short, not much. But things will be more convenient.
Service days and cart sizes will remain the same, however, basic services will remain the same but stickers will no longer be needed for extra waste generated. This is a big benefit to residents!
Yard waste will also be collected without the need for stickers.
Who is LRS?
LRS is one of the Midwest’s largest privately-held waste and recycle haulers. For over 20 years, LRS has been an industry leader in waste diversion and recycling initiatives which has led to less material ending up in landfills, and more material being redirected into the recyclable stream. Beyond conventional waste services, LRS is also Illinois’ leader in roll-off container services, portable restrooms, and street-sweeping services. These options enable us to offer residents and customers a complete-the-project option the way no other hauler can. With operations in Illinois and Wisconsin, LRS owns and operates nearly 15 material recovery facilities (MRFs), complimented by a fleet of nearly 600 fuel-efficient trucks. We operate at the highest industry standards, and take pride in finding ways and solutions that are consistent with our mission of sustainability, and value to our customers.
We look forward to partnering with the great community of Elmwood Park. We understand that the Village and its residents have high standards when it comes to waste, recycling and yard waste services, and will dedicate ourselves to exceeding them.
There are no billing changes at this time. Residents will still be billed on the water bill for their refuse service.
