City of Monmouth Waste Collection Program
LRS is excited to become the City of Monmouth’s new residential waste hauler, starting on May 2, 2022. We have a great appreciation for the high standards Monmouth residents have when it comes to service, quality and value. We look forward to exceeding those expectations. LRS is a Midwest leader with a local operation established right here in Monmouth! Under the City’s new contract with LRS, residents will see a cost savings compared to other bidders along with enhanced services for the next seven years.
All Monmouth residents will be provided with one 95-gallon waste cart at no cost. This cart will be serviced on a weekly basis, and residents will have the option to swap out the 95-gallon cart with a 65-gallon or 35-gallon cart. LRS in partnership with the city will provide the first swap as a courtesy, but any additional swaps will incur a fee of $75.00.
All carts should be placed at the curbside no later than 6AM on your service day. LRS recommends that carts are placed out for service the night before. Although LRS strives to keep a consistent pick-up time, weather and staffing can alter pickup times.
All waste should be bagged and placed inside of the provided LRS cart with the lid closed to ensure safe collection and to help maintain a clean neighborhood appearance.
Should you need additional cart capacity on a permanent basis, LRS will provide one at a cost of $3 per month, per cart. Please contact city hall to request an additional cart.
For trash that does not fit in the cart, LRS will provide service as needed, scheduled at an agreed upon per-yard basis billed from LRS directly to the resident. In addition, collection stickers may be placed on extra bags of trash outside the cart. These stickers can be purchased for $2.00 each
If a single item is too large to fit in a cart then it is considered a bulky item. LRS will accept one bulky item on the 3rd week of the month for no additional charge. The bulky item will be collected on your regular scheduled trash day. If the item is heavier than 50lbs please contact LRS to schedule the collection with our customer experience team so they can provide adequate equipment to handle the item safely. Additional bulk items must be scheduled with LRS for a charge of $10.00 per item.
LRS will provide collection of major appliances, including but not limited to ovens and refrigerators. LRS will accept one white good per month for no additional charge, but the item must be scheduled with LRS in advance. Additional white goods may be scheduled with LRS for an additional charge of $25.00 per item.Residents may either email us at Monmouth@LRSrecycles.com or call 309-586-4410 to schedule additional collections.
