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 4p.

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 April 1 through December 15. The annual subscription fee is included on your quarterly bill and does not require yard waste 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
2021 Clean-Up Days: Saturday, May 22
As part of the contract with LRS, the Village has a May Clean-Up Day 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.
