Village of Skokie

Residential Recycling Services

If you need information regarding Skokie’s residential waste collection, please contact the Village directly at 847.933.8427.

In a contract that began on June 1, 2016, Skokie residents have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the environment through this comprehensive weekly recycling program. In addition to servicing Skokie residents, Lakeshore Recycling Systems is also the Village of Skokie’s franchised commercial waste hauler, which went into effect February 2012.

Residents are provided with 65-gallon carts for recyclable materials from the village of Skokie. The collection of recyclable materials occurs once a week in residential areas. Please flatten large boxes and place them next to the cart. Please DO NOT mix garbage or landscape waste in the recycling cart.

In curbside collection areas, set out recycling containers by 7a on the day of pickup, but not before 6p the night before collection.

Please be advised that the Village of Skokie still maintains their own waste collection services to residents.

Lakeshore Recycling Systems provides weekly residential recycling service to:

  • Single-family homes
  • Townhomes
  • Duplexes
  • Multi-unit residential homes (up to three-flat and four unit co-op buildings)
