Highland Park residents, our agreement with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) allows one large electronic waste item to placed curbside on the customer's first pickup of each month at no additional charge. Items over 50 lbs. will incur additional fees. To ensure your electronic recycling items are collected, you must call LRS to schedule your pick-up.
