Winnetka

Residential recycling services

In a contract that began on February 1, 2016, LRS services Winnetka residents through our comprehensive weekly recycling program. The Village of Winnetka Public Works provides garbage pickup on the same schedule. LRS’ recycling program provides Winnetka residents with the opportunity to support the community by making a positive environmental impact.

Recycling pickup only occurs at the curb in 95-gallon recycling carts provided by the Village. LRS provides a weekly Street-side Service from 7a to 5p. Please be advised that customers must have carts out by 7a on the day of service.

Effective April 1, the Village will be transitioning from a 4-day refuse and recycling collection schedule to a 5-day refuse and recycling collection schedule. Residents who receive Monday and Tuesday collections will not be impacted by this change.

The refuse and recycling collection schedule will be as follows:

  • Monday: All properties north of Tower Road
  • Tuesday: All properties between Tower Road and Pine Street
  • Wednesday: All properties east of the railroad and south of Pine Street
  • Thursday: All properties west of the railroad between Pine Street and Willow Road
  • Friday: All properties west of the railroad, south of Willow Road
