Winter Composting Program

Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) is extending the pilot Winter Compost Program for a second year to residents who would like to participate during off-months (December through March). The Winter Compost Program allows participants to place food scraps and/or yard waste in the same container to be picked up every other week. Please note the Winter Compost Program collection will be on Wednesdays, which is different from your regular garbage and recycling collection day.

Residents will again have two options:

1. Use your own cart/can, and attach one sticker per can (check City website for current sticker prices); or,

2. Enroll for the season for a total cost of $96.50 through 3/31/20. (Please note: this program is not being pro-rated.)

If you choose to use an LRS cart, one will be provided at an additional cost of $3/month.

To participate in the program, contact LRS at 847.665.8811. Learn more about composting in Highland Park at
