Clarendon Hills Residential Waste & Recycling

Garbage is collected on Tuesday in the City of McLouth. All items need to be placed out to the curb the night before your service day. LRS offers wheeled carts for garbage with a flip-top lid and handlebar to throw your refuse in. There is no limit to the amount of garbage that can be placed out for collection, as long as materials are properly prepared and contained . All residents should use the LRS issued cart for garbage materials. LRS offers additional waste carts for an additional rental fee.

Bulk items (that do not fit into your refuse cart) are collected loose, on your regular day of service. If an item exceeds 50lbs, residents  should call LRS to schedule a special pickup. If a “bulk” item is considered hazardous, unacceptable for landfills or deemed unacceptable to take as garbage, the item(s) will not be taken.

Mattresses and box/bed springs are required to be in a plastic mattress cover and taped securely shut. Plastic mattress covers may be purchased at retail outlets such as Walmart, Lowes, Menards, Home Depot and storage unit facilities. Packaging wrap or trash bags cut up and taped around to cover a mattress or box spring are also acceptable options.

Please call LRS to see if such items can be scheduled for a special pickup.

“White Goods” are appliances that contain CFC, HCFC, PCBs, mercury switches, or other hazardous components (refrigerators, air conditioners, humidifiers etc). These items will be taken, but will need to be free of the above referenced material and required to be prescheduled to LRS customer service.

Contact LRS at 785-232-9168  for any items you are unsure about. Items requiring additional labor and/or equipment to manage are a Special Refuse Collection. LRS will provide a cost estimate if we are able to provide the service.  LRS does not guarantee collection of every item.

LRS has expanded our temporary services division to create an easier customer experience.  These temporary services include dumpster roll-offs of all sizes to contain your construction debris and other home renovation waste.

Contact us today to discover all the ways Lakeshore can make your waste removal even easier, no matter the project.

Residents are billed for refuse services through the City of McLouth. Please reach out to the city with any questions.

How do I clean my cart?

Fill the cart with hot water and a capful of vinegar or grease-cutting dish soap. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and rinse. Once the cart has been thoroughly rinsed, set the cart out with the lid open in the sun to dry.

 

What if I need my cart replaced?

Carts that are broken due to damage incurred during the collection are reported by the driver for replacement at no charge. Residents are encouraged to contact LRS if they notice damage to the cart during the collection process to request a replacement cart.

If damage occurs to the cart due to other reasons, please contact LRS to request a replacement cart. An exchange fee will be applied and billed to the resident if requesting a new cart due to damage not incurred during the collection process or odors.

 

Is this considered garbage?

Latex paint

Latex paint is considered regular garbage, but it must be completely dried, with the lid off so the driver is able to see inside the can. Dry latex paint by leaving lid off or open and/or mix kitty litter until the paint is completely absorbed. Do not place out for collection until the paint is completely dry.

Alkaline batteries

Alkaline batteries are considered regular garbage and should be thrown into the garbage. It is always recommended that tape be used on each end of the battery and placed into a plastic sandwich bag when disposing of them.

 

How do I report a missed pickup?

If your waste service is not collected on the service day by 6 pm, please contact LRS by calling  785-232-9168
