New Technology: RFID

In order to verify service, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips are added to the current recycling carts and new garbage carts. LRS’ RFID technology implementation will track customer pickups and bill residents without the cumbersome act of buying stickers.

 

Garbage Stickers

With the implementation of RFID chips, garbage stickers will not be needed for weekly service. Residents will be charged a reduced rate for each garbage and recycling pickup.

Yard Waste/Organic Stickers

As a new service offering, Wheaton residents now have the availability to include food scraps (organics) with their yard waste. Stickers for this service can be purchased at a reduced price of $2.99 per sticker.

Miscellaneous Items

Stickers will be required for electronics, excess garbage and bulk items.

What Do Residents Need To Do?

LRS offers the following cart sizes:

  • 35-gallon
  • 65-gallon
  • 95-gallon

Residents will receive a letter/invoice to sign up and establish a billing account with LRS.

Wheaton & the Environment

LRS is looking forward to a great partnership with the 53,000 residents and businesses of Wheaton, Illinois. The National Recreation and Park Association has awarded the Wheaton Park District with the National Gold Medal Award for Excellence four times. The 52 parks and over 800 acres of land need to stay green for the community to fully enjoy their beauty. We help make that happen. Our focus on maintaining a sustainable Wheaton is at the very core of our mission. Our dumpsters, on-site storage, portable bathrooms, mulch and street sweepers services are all eco-friendly. Our recycling and transfer center in West Chicago is nearby for your convenience.
