Garbage (Refuse) Service
Beginning May 1, 2019, garbage is collected on Monday and Tuesday in the Village of Worth. There is no limit to the amount of garbage that can be placed out for collection, so long as it’s properly prepared. All residents should use the LRS issued cart for garbage materials. LRS offers additional waste carts in various sizes for $3.09 per cart, per month.
Additional garbage that does not fit in the LRS cart may be placed neatly at the curb in bags, tied bundles, containers or boxes weighing up to 50 pounds. If using your own waste container for additional waste, it must have two handles and not exceed 33 gallons for safety reasons. If an item or items are not safe for the driver to manage, they may be left behind with a sticker providing an explanation.
Large Bulk Garbage Items
Large bulk items can be placed out for collection at no charge. Includes average sized furniture items such as a couch, table, or chair. Please email of call LRS if placing a large bulk item out for collection 24 hours prior to collection day. If your collection day is on Monday, please send a notification the Friday before to ensure collection.
Carpet Rolls must be no longer than 4’ in length, and 18” in diameter
For health and safety reasons, mattresses must be wrapped in plastic to be collected. Plastic mattress wrap can be found at local grocery stores, hardware stores, storage and moving outlets. If using loose plastic, it must be completely taped and secured on all corners with no exposure to the mattress.
