Landscape Waste Collection
Available from April 1 to December 15, LRS provides a simple option for landscape waste collection. LRS offers two services for landscape waste.
Subscription Service provides a flat monthly rate that covers up to ten 35-gallon containers or kraft bags. For more than ten kraft bags or containers, a sticker must be affixed onto the additional bags/containers. See the sticker service information below.
Sticker Service is a weekly volume-based system where a customer pays for only the quantity of the landscape waste collected. This option is done by the customer purchasing stickers through LRS and placing them on a kraft bag. Bags and cans should not exceed 35 gallons and 50 pounds. Prior to the pickup, the customer must call LRS the Tuesday before service to alert our staff of the requests.
