For any recycling bins that are placed out and do not meet guidelines, (i.e., non-accepted materials placed inside the recycling bin) will be left behind and receive a city violation. Residents have up to 3 city violations before they are unable to participate in the optional service and recycling bin will be removed.
Please contact LRS customer service if you have any inquires on how to dispose of any of the non-accepted recyclable materials.
Yard waste is collected year-round on the same day as refuse and recyclables.
What is considered yard waste?
Yard waste, also known as landscape waste, consists of organic waste materials accumulated as the result of cultivation and maintenance of gardens, lawns, shrubbery, trees and vines.
Yard waste is garden trimmings, branches and brush under two inches (2”) in diameter, leaves, flowers, tree droppings (crabapples and pinecones), garden plants, vines, weeds and grass clippings and yard trimmings.
Residents may place out Kraft bags or personal containers not exceeding 30g or 40lbs when full. Please attach one sticker per bag, bundle or container, purchased at the LRS office.

“Bulk Items” are items that are too large to fit into a cart or can. LRS will collect one bulk item per week at no charge. If a bulk item is deemed hazardous or unacceptable for landfills, that item will not be taken. Bulk items must be prescheduled and prepaid to be collected from the curb. Alternative options include the recycling drop-off facility or the bi-annual clean-up events.
Examples of a bulk or large item exceeding the capacity of the LRS refuse (garbage) cart, includes the following: bed frame, box spring (bed), bicycle, chair, love seat/sofa, one part of a sectional couch, mattress, frame, or wall picture. These are only some examples as there are many items that may be considered bulk items.
For health and safety reasons, mattresses must be wrapped in plastic to be collected. Plastic mattress wrap can be found online or 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.
Bulk items requiring special equipment and additional labor, such as a piano, sleeper sofa (couch with pull out bed) and large entertainment center are considered a Special Refuse Collection.
LRS and the City of Harrison will provide bi-annual clean-up events for residents included in city limits. Please contact LRS to see when the next clean-up date is. Please refer to the guidelines below for cleanup requirements:
- All items must be placed curbside the night before scheduled pickup day
- Trucks make only one pass through each street
- Acceptable items include: Clothes, carpet, fencing, furniture, mattresses & box springs, non-freon containing appliances, toys, tools, bicycles (without tires), push & self-propelled lawn mowers, metal (short lengths), and lumber (4 feet in length)

How do I clean my cart?
Fill the cart with hot water and a capful of vinegar or grease-cutting dish soap. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and rinse. Once the cart has been thoroughly rinsed, set the cart out with the lid open in the sun to dry.
What if I need my cart replaced?
Carts that are broken due to damage incurred during the collection are reported by the driver for replacement at no charge. Residents are encouraged to contact LRS if they notice damage to the cart during the collection process to request a replacement cart.
If damage occurs to the cart due to other reasons, please contact LRS to request a replacement cart. An exchange fee will be applied and billed to the resident if requesting a new cart due to damage not incurred during the collection process or odors.
Is this considered garbage?
Latex paint is considered regular garbage, but it must be completely dried, with the lid off so the driver is able to see inside the can. Dry latex paint by leaving lid off or open and/or mix kitty litter until the paint is completely absorbed. Do not place out for collection until the paint is completely dry.
Alkaline batteries are considered regular garbage and should be thrown into the garbage. It is always recommended that tape be used on each end of the battery and placed into a plastic sandwich bag when disposing of them.
