  • Yard waste
White goods and appliances (washers and dryers, refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, stoves, AC units, hot water heaters, freezers, etc.) are not accepted. If you have an appliance or white good that needs removal, please contact a LRS Service Representative at 773.685.8811 or to schedule service. A charge of $40.00 per item will be charged.
Clean-up is also offered year-round through Lakeshore Recycling Systems’ (LRS) bulk item pickup service. LRS will take one ‘Bulk’ item that can be safely removed, per week at no charge (tables, chairs, mattresses etc.). If more than one bulk item is left out for pickup you will need to call LRS to receive a quote for removal. Get the word out to neighbors - you don't need to wait for spring to get rid of unwanted items! The same spring cleanup restrictions apply (no white goods, no electronics, construction debris, items must be under 50lbs). Please call ahead to notify LRS of the bulk item at 773.685.8811.
LRS will collect one large electronic under 50lbs waste item (televisions, monitors, computers, speakers, etc.) or three small electronic waste items (phones, mice, radios, adding machines, etc.) on the first customer collection day of each month. Please contact LRS for information regarding large or small sized electronic waste options at 773.685.8811 or
