General Collection Guidelines

Your collection day will remain the same. All garbage, recycling and yard waste will be collected between the times of 7AM and 7PM on your collection day. Please place all items on your curbside between 7PM the night before, and 6AM the day of collection. Containers must be removed from the parkway/curbside by 7PM on your collection day.

Garbage Collection

If you have additional waste that will not fit in your garbage cart or can, you must place a sticker on each bag and/or item, and place it next to the cart or can. There is no limit to the amount of garbage bags we will collect, as long as stickers are applied. 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.

Bulk Items

“Bulk Items” are items that are too large to fit into a cart or can. Each bulk item will require one sticker. Carpet rolls must be no longer than 4’ in length, and 18” in diameter. 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.

White Goods

“White Goods,” are appliances containing CFC, HCFC, PCBs, mercury switches or other hazardous components (refrigerators, air conditioners, humidifiers, etc.) These items will require one sticker per item. White goods will usually be collected separately by a box truck at the end of the day.

DIY Construction

Home remodeling waste that includes, but is not limited to drywall, plywood, paneling, lumber, doors, windows, cabinets, porcelain fixtures, sod, fencing, concrete or rocks will require special pickups. Residents will need to call and schedule service for these items, and will be charged by the yard.

Recycling Collection

As has been the case in the past, residents are encouraged to co-mingle acceptable recyclable items in their carts. All food-based recyclables should be rinsed. Plastic bags are not recyclable, and should not be placed in recycling carts.

There is no limit to the amount of recyclables that residents can put out each week for collection. As is the case with waste items, recyclable items must be under 50lbs. LRS may reach out to residents who regularly generate more recyclables than will fit in their carts to recommend a larger or second container.

Yard Waste Collection

Please Note: The City of St. Charles’ current Brush and Leaf collection programs will not change. However, additional collection options are available with Lakeshore:

Weekly brush/yard waste collection by Lakeshore will begin the third full week of March, and end on November 30. Residents may use brown kraft bags, each with a sticker affixed, or a 65-gallon LRS cart for an additional cost. For the first two weekly pickups of the spring, stickers will not be required on yard waste left for collection. Starting on December 1, and ending on December 31, residents may place leaves (only) in brown bags (only). Stickers will not be required for collection on these items during those dates.

If containers are not feasible for brush collection by Lakeshore, place brush, limbs, branches and trimmings in bundled and twined stacks no larger than 4’ in length and 18” in diameter at your collection point. Stickers will need to be affixed to the bundles. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be accepted. Place leaves in either biodegradable bags or a maximum of 35G container, weighing no more than 50lbs.

LRS will collect Christmas trees for the first two full weeks of January at no charge.

Billing Information

Residents will continue to use the PAYT / Sticker-based service they are used to, and will not be charged for use of their recycling carts.  Subscription customers will receive a bill in advance of the next three months of service.  Residents using the subscription option for service may pay electronically, online or by authorized ACH transactions. We also encourage residents to opt for electronic receipt of invoices.
