Village of La Grange Park

Village of La Grange Park Refuse, Recycling and Yard-Waste Collection Program

Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) is excited to become the Village of La Grange Park’s waste and recycling hauler as of April 1, 2019. We know that Village residents have high expectations when it comes to service, quality and value; we intend to exceed those standards.

With the Village’s new hauling agreement, (most) residents will notice a cost-savings, as well as an improvement in service options and enhanced curbside appearance.

With the transition occurring from Republic Services to LRS on April 1, 2019, residents should avoid buying large amounts of Republic stickers. However, LRS will accept Republic stickers through the month of April.

  • Every home will receive one waste cart and one recycling cart; residents will have the option of using a 35-gallon, 65-gallon or 95-gallon for garbage, and a35-gallon, 65-gallon or 95-gallon cart for recycling.
  • Residents will now be charged a monthly fee for services, which will be billed quarterly.
  • The Village will be serviced on a three-day schedule. Residents will either continue being serviced on Thursday, or be moved to Wednesday or Friday.

Waste and Recycling Carts

With the transition to an all-cart program, (most) La Grange Park residents will notice not only a savings in the cost of service and stickers but also an improvement in the curbside appearance on service days that will allow for cleaner streets and more efficient service.

Carts will be delivered starting on March 22nd, and continue through March 29th. All carts will be delivered at curbside, and should not be used for service until March 29th.

On service days, residents who are new to the cart format should plan on having carts out for service by 7AM. Carts should be placed at least 3’ from mailboxes, trees, light poles or parked cars, and 1’ – 2’ from the curb or other carts. If you have been using your own garbage can with a sticker, you can either keep that cart for your general home needs, or we will take it at no cost – as long as it is labeled “Please take/dispose.”


Your service day will either remain on Thursday, or be switched to Wednesday or Friday. Please call: 773-685-8811 or email: for verification.

All garbage, recycling and yard waste will be serviced between 7AM and 5PM on collection days. Please have your carts out for service between 7PM the night before service, and 6AM on your collection day. Carts should be removed from the curbside by 7PM on collection days.

Garbage Collection

If you have additional garbage that will not fit into your cart, you must use a garbage sticker for each bag or item outside of the cart. Stickers can be purchased at Village Hall, or the same vendors that have carried them in the past. There is no limit on the amount of bags that can be collected, as long as each bag has a sticker. Please note: garbage mixed with yard waste / leaves / grass clippings cannot be taken as waste.


Residents can mix recyclable items in their recycle cart. There is no limit on the amount of recyclable material that can be put out for service each week. Excess items that will not fit into recycle carts may be placed on the side of the cart for collection, and will not require a sticker. Residents are encouraged to consider a larger recycle carts to keep pace with the increasing amounts of material that are recyclable, and the advent of online purchasing (cardboard-based).

Please do not place plastic bags in your recycling cart.

Yard Waste Collection

Residents should continue to use brown (kraft) bags for yard waste disposal. Each bag will require one sticker. LRS also offers a seasonal option, in which residents will be provided a yard waste cart, or continue to use brown bags.

Yard waste that will not fit into a brown bag or cart will need to be bundled in units that are no longer than 4’ and 18” in diameter. Each stack will require one waste sticker for removal. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be accepted.

LRS will provide collection of organic Christmas trees for the first two weeks after Christmas at no charge. Beyond this, trees will require five stickers each.

Bulk Items

Bulk items are items that are too large to fit into your waste cart. Each bulk item requires waste stickers affixed. Carpet rolls may be no longer than 4’ and 18” in diameter and will require waste stickers. If an item is too large, or an item that is not allowable to take, special arrangements may need to be made.

White Goods

White goods are appliances containing CFC, HCFC, PCBs mercury switches or other hazardous components.

Examples: refrigerators, air conditioners and humidifiers. These items will require waste stickers to be collected. All white goods will be collected on a separate truck, and will need to be scheduled.

Do-it-yourself Construction

DIY construction or demolition debris will require waste stickers per stack or 35-gallon container. These stacks and/or containers may be no more than 50lbs per unit, and no more than 4’ in length and 18” in diameter.
