Residential Waste and Recycling Services
Village Offers Buy Back Program for Republic Services Refuse & Yard Waste Stickers June 18 – July 20, 2018. (see FAQ below)
The Lisle Village Board recently approved a contract with a new refuse, recycling and yard waste hauling provider, Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS). This contract provides more services at a lower cost to Lisle residents.
The current residential refuse, recycling and yard waste hauling contract with Republic Services expires on June 30, 2018, with new service from Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) beginning the week of July 1.
Under the new contract, normal collection days for curbside pickup will change from Tuesdays to Wednesdays. Please note this new collection day. For residents who purchased stickers from Republic that will no longer be needed due to this change, a two-week grace period will be offered by Lakeshore Recycling Systems for the first two pickups on Thursday, July 5 and Wednesday, July 11. Lakeshore Recycling Systems will accept stickers issued by Republic Services on these two dates only.
Additionally, a buy back opportunity for stickers issued by Republic that will no longer be needed will be provided between June 18 – July 20 in the Business Office at Village Hall, 925 Burlington Avenue, Lisle, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. A full refund will be provided for all unused stickers during this time period. To be eligible for a refund, stickers must be unused, whole, and have the backing intact. No refunds will be issued after July 20.
Under the new contract, the cost will decrease to $3.00 per sticker, and the same sticker can be used for refuse and for yard waste pickup. In the coming weeks, local participating retailers that previously sold Republic Services stickers will be selling stickers offered by Lakeshore Recycling Systems.
Recycling services will be provided free of charge for Lisle residents; options include a 35-gallon or 65-gallon container, also free of charge to Lisle residents.
Republic carts cannot be used under the new program, and the company will be collecting carts starting the day of the last pick up on June 26. New carts from Lakeshore will be distributed starting in the middle of June.
