Available Services

We are excited to announce that the implementation of cart deliveries has now been completed! Starting on May 2, we will begin the process of exchanging carts for those residents who have or are looking to replace what was delivered with a different size cart. During this period, we ask kindly that you please leave your cart(s) curbside during daytime hours for the next few weeks to ensure a quick and safe exchange. Also, please go ahead and use the carts that were delivered until your preferred cart(s) arrive at your home.

Schaumburg: Garbage, Recycling, Yard Waste Collection Program

Beginning May 1, 2022, LRS will be the new service provider for curbside waste, recycling and yard waste for Schaumburg homes.

Each home will automatically receive two carts, one for waste and one for recycling. There is no cost for the carts. Carts are available in the following sizes: 35-gallon, 64-gallon, and 96-gallon.

Residents must choose their preferred cart size for waste and recycling by March 18, 2022. Residents who decide not to select carts through the web portal or customer service team will receive the standard sizes of 96-gallon for waste and 64-gallon for recycling. Townhomes will receive the default size of 64-gallons for both waste and recycling.

Residents may also continue to use their own personal containers for trash and recycling services if they so choose. Enrollment for this option is required or a set of standard size carts will be automatically delivered to your address.

Delivery of new waste and recycling carts will take place almost daily during the month of April, starting on the 11th. Carts may not be received on the same day or at the same time.

These carts will be placed curbside and should not be used until the first week of May as they will not be serviced prior to this time. Carts currently in use will be removed by the current hauler either the last week of service of the first week of May.

New service with LRS will begin on May 1, 2022. Waste and recycling will be collected on the same day as has been past practice. Schaumburg will move to a 5-day service schedule. Most residents will retain their current service days; the new service map will be available on this page and on the village’s website at www.Schaumburg.com as soon as it is available. Service information will also be provided with cart delivery in the form of a sticker attached to the handle.

Garbage, recycling and landscape waste shall be placed curbside the day of collection no later than 7 a.m. to ensure they are collected.

Waste Collection

Waste collection will continue on a weekly basis. Schaumburg and LRS will continue to allow residents to use additional personal receptacles in addition to their LRS cart.

In addition to curbside waste collection, LRS offers a variety of other waste services.

Bulk Items / Excess Garbage

LRS will take 2 cubic yards of additional waste that is not able to fit into your cart as long as it is within Illinois landfill regulations and it is safe to handle by the driver(s). Up to 2 bulk items will be collected as long as each item is under 50 pounds and under 2 cubic yards.

For items that do not fit the above criteria, LRS will provide service as needed, scheduled at an agreed upon per-yard basis. This service will be upon request, and billed separately.

White Goods

Upon request, LRS will provide collection of major appliances, including but not limited to ovens and refrigerators.

Residents simply need to call LRS and speak to a representative who will set up a date to collect the item, and provide a quote for removal. This will be billed separately.

Christmas Trees

LRS will provide curbside collection of Christmas trees for the month of January at no charge. Only live trees (not in bags) free of any tinsel, lights or ornaments will be accepted.

Additional Cart(s)

Should you need an additional waste (or recycling) cart, LRS will provide one at a cost of $3 per month, per cart.

LRS will provide residents with one recycling cart at no cost that will be collected weekly on the same day as your waste. Residents may place out as many recyclable items as they wish each week for collection. Recyclable material that won’t fit in recycling carts may be placed at the side of the cart. Larger or bulky boxes must be broken down before collection.

Additional recycling carts may be rented at a cost of $3 per month, per cart.

Yard Waste/Organics

LRS will provide seasonal yard waste collection from the first full week in April through the second full week in December. Residents may use and place out their own 35-gallon or smaller cans with yard waste, or brown kraft bags free of charge. User-owned cans should be clearly marked as “YW,” and may not weigh more than 50lbs (this weight limit also applies to kraft paper bags). The bundle size is restricted to 4’ in length, 2’ diameter, and no heavier than 50 pounds. Branches cannot exceed 3” in diameter.

As part of the Village’s new contract with LRS, residents may place organic material and food waste with the yard waste they set out for collection. Nearly 20% of all food waste ends up in landfills, so we encourage participation. Residents may also rent a yard waste/compost cart at a cost of $3, per month.

Please note that yard waste is excluded for multi-family dwellings.

Your yard waste service day will be on the same day as your waste and recycling.
