Recycling, Refuse & Yard Waste

Western Springs Awards Waste and Recycling Contract

Village Trustees have awarded a 5-year residential waste and recycling contract to Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), beginning in January 2020.

Following feedback from a resident survey in 2018, the Village prioritized the elimination of blue bags. Residents will be able to choose between 35, 65, and 95-gallon waste and recycling carts, and whether they would like curbside or backdoor refuse collection. The fee for service, based on the size of container and type of service, will be billed directly by LRS. Stickers will only be required for refuse outside of the cart, special collections, or bags/bundle of landscape waste.

See the LRS service map, which was revised in December 2019, to confirm your collection day.
