Village of Glencoe

Residential Waste and Recycling Services

Lakeshore Recycling Systems services Glencoe, IL residents through a comprehensive weekly recycling and waste program. This exclusive service provides residents with the opportunity to make a significant contribution to protecting the environment. Lakeshore Recycling Systems was awarded an exclusive waste service contract with the Village in 2018 after partnering with the Village for two years in the residential recycling program.

Collections times are from 7a to 5p.

Yard Waste and Special Collection

Glencoe’s new combined curbside yard waste and composting service allows residents to dispose of compostable materials such as fruit and vegetable peels, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper napkins and yard waste in a biodegradable paper yard waste bags, or curbside bins between April 1 and December 15. There are two options for utilizing this new service: volume-based (stickers) and subscription (annual payment). Please note, the composting service is available if you do not need yard waste collection.

Subscription Service
Yard waste subscribers may place unlimited bags or bundles of combined food scrap and landscape waste material at the curb each week on Wednesdays from mid-April through mid-December. The annual subscription fee is included on your quarterly bill and does not require yard waste stickers. 

Stickers
Residents not subscribing to the annual combined food scrap and yard waste collection subscription service, must affix stickers to each biodegradable paper yard waste bag, garbage can no larger than 44-gallons, or bundle of branches/brush.

Stickers may be purchased at the Village Hall or Grand Food Center. Yard waste is collected on Wednesdays beginning mid-April through mid-December.

Semi-Annual Clean-Up Days
2018 Clean-Up Days: Wednesday, May 2 and Wednesday, October 3
As part of the new contract with LRS, the Village will now have two Clean-Up Days, one in May and one in October of each year. Clean-up days are an opportunity for residents to dispose of “bulk items” that are not generally included in garbage collection such as furniture, appliances, boxes and tires. However, hazardous waste (paint, gas, chemicals, etc.), electronics (computers, stereos, etc.), building materials (wood, lumber, drywall, etc.) and landscape waste (trees, branches, logs, leaves, etc.) are not included in this program.

Unlike the Village’s previous program, all bulk items are to be put out on one day for all zones (there is not a different day for Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday zones).
