Garbage collection is unlimited.

You are to use the LRS issued cart first. Loose bags can be placed out however they must not exceed 30 gallons and 50lbs per bag.

 

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 garbage cart for $5.00 per month. Please contact LRS to do so.

LRS provides one cart for recycling at no charge for each household. Carts are available in the 95-gallon size for recycling. Additional carts are available upon request. Contact LRS Customer Service for more information or with questions on recycling.

Christmas Trees

During the first two weeks of January, we will begin to gladly collect your non-artificial Christmas trees as organic material – free of any tinsel, ornaments or lights.  Trees can be left loose (never in bags) in the area where you have regular service for trash and recycling.  Due to snow and ice, trees may not always be picked up on your service day as our drivers and trucks will be in the village all month for pickups.

“Bulk Items” are items that are too large to fit into a cart or can. LRS will collect one bulk item per week at no charge. If a bulk item is deemed hazardous, unacceptable for landfills or weighs more than 50lbs, that item will not be taken. Please schedule a special pickup with LRS for these types of items. Any additional bulk items requested to be serviced on the same day, must be prescheduled and prepaid to LRS at $35.00 per item.

 

Examples of a bulk or large item exceeding the capacity of the LRS refuse (garbage) includes the following; bed frame, box spring (bed), bicycle, chair, love seat/sofa, one part of sectional couch, mattress, frame or wall picture, or a toy. These are only some examples as there are many items that may be considered a bulk item.

 

For health and safety reasons, mattresses are requested to be wrapped in plastic to be collected. 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.

 

Bulk items requiring special equipment and additional labor, such as a piano, sofa sleeper (couch with pull out bed) and large entertainment center, and construction debris are considered a Special Refuse Collection.
