Monday is the service day in Saddlebrook. All garbage and recycling will be collected between the times of 7AM and 7PM on your collection day. Service times are subject to change.
Garbage collection is limited. Residents are to use the LRS cart first for any garbage. Any garbage outside of the cart is required to be prescheduled and prepaid.
LRS provides refuse carts in the 95-gallon size. If you would like to inquire about exchanging your current cart, please email Service@LRSRecycles.com or call 847.381.9300 and any of our service representatives would be happy to assist (fees may apply).
LRS provides one cart for recycling at no charge for each household. Carts are available in the 65-gallon size. Recycling is serviced on the same day as trash and on a one truck pass. The same truck that services your trash, has a split body to also grab the recyclables. Contact LRS Customer Service for more information or with questions on recycling.
- Recyclables are collected on the same day of the week as the garbage
- You are to use the LRS issued cart for recycled materials
- Plastic bags with recycling material cannot be accepted
- For materials that do not fit in the container, please contact LRS customer service
Bulk items (that do not fit into your refuse cart) are collected loose, on your regular day of service with prepayment and prescheduling. If an item exceeds 50lbs, or does not fit in the trash cart, residents need to call LRS to schedule a special pickup. If a “bulk” item is considered hazardous, unacceptable for landfills or deemed unacceptable to take as garbage, the item(s) will not be taken.
Each bulky item is required to be prescheduled and prepaid.
Mattresses and box/bed springs are requested to be in a plastic mattress cover and taped securely shut. Plastic mattress covers may be purchased at retail outlets such as Walmart, Lowes, Menards, Home Depot and storage unit facilities. Packaging wrap or trash bags cut up and taped around to cover a mattress or box spring are also acceptable options.

How do I clean my cart?
Fill the cart with hot water and a capful of vinegar or grease-cutting dish soap. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and rinse. Once the cart has been thoroughly rinsed, set the cart out with the lid open in the sun to dry.
What if I need my cart replaced?
Carts that are broken due to damage incurred during the collection are reported by the driver for replacement at no charge. Residents are encouraged to contact LRS if they notice damage to the cart during the collection process to request a replacement cart.
If damage occurs to the cart due to other reasons, please contact LRS to request a replacement cart.
Is this considered garbage?
Latex paint is considered regular garbage, but it must be completely dried, with the lid off so the driver is able to see inside the can. Dry latex paint by leaving lid off or open and/or mix kitty litter until the paint is completely absorbed. Do not place out for collection until the paint is completely dry.
Alkaline batteries are considered regular garbage and should be thrown into the garbage. It is always recommended that tape be used on each end of the battery and placed into a plastic sandwich bag when disposing of them.
