Village of Hinckley Residential Refuse, Recycling and Yard Waste Services

Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) provides the refuse (garbage), recycling and yard waste services for the Village of Hinckley residents. LRS is a privately owned company headquartered in Morton Grove, IL. The Hinckley residents are serviced out of the Cortland, IL facility formerly known as DC Trash.

Holiday Schedule

LRS and DC Recycling Systems recognizes six holidays per year. Service will not take place on these recognized holidays. If the holiday falls on or before your regular weekly collection day, the collection day will be postponed by one day.  Friday services are always done on Saturday.


Monday is the service day.  All garbage, recycling and yard waste will be collected between the times of 7AM and 6PM on your collection day.

Every resident will be delivered a garbage and recycle cart on wheels, with a hinged lid and a handle bar. The LRS carts are to be used going forward.

Garbage Carts and Collection

All residents have the option to choose a 35, 65 or 95-gallon garbage cart.

Residents will automatically be delivered a 95-gallon garbage cart, by default, unless different cart sizes are selected. See Cart Selection Information if you’d like a different size.

There is no limit to the amount of garbage LRS will collect. Residents may use a non-LRS cart or container for waste or recycling materials that do not fit into the LRS issued cart so long as it does not exceed 35 gallons, 50 lbs. and has two handles.

Please note: garbage mixed with yard waste, leaves or organic material will not be collected, as this material is not permitted in State of Illinois Landfills.

Residents may request an additional 95-gallon garbage cart for $5.00 per month.

Recycling Carts and Co-Mingled Collection

All residents have the option to choose between a 35, 65 or 95-gallon recycle cart.

Residents will automatically be delivered a 65-gallon recycle cart, by default, unless different cart sizes are selected. See Cart Selection Information if you would like a different size.

Residents who generate more recyclables, may request one (1) additional 95 gallon recycle cart at no charge. Residents may use a non-LRS cart or container for waste or recycling materials that do not fit into the LRS issued cart, so long as it does not exceed 35 gallons, 50 lbs. and has two handles.

Recycling needs to be properly prepared in accordance with the recycling guideline. All food-based recyclable containers should be rinsed. Plastic bags are not recyclable, and should not be placed in recycling carts. Click here for an LRS Recycle Guide.

Yard Waste Collection

Yard waste is considered grass or shrubbery cuttings, leaves, tree limbs, and other materials accumulated as a result of the care of lawns, shrubbery and vines.

Yard Waste season begins April 1 through November 15 each year. Yard waste collection is unlimited so long as it’s properly prepared. Yard waste can be placed in 2 ply, biodegradable paper bags, or containers not exceeding 35 gallons and marked clearly with a large “X” or the yard waste carts provided by the LRS for $5.00 per month or brush bundles tied in biodegradable twine not exceeding 4’ length, 2’ width and 50 lbs. Leaves must be bagged.
