LRS Collection MapFebruary 15, 2022 -- While we may still have a few weeks of snowy weather remaining, spring is coming - and that means Lakeshore Recycling Systems’ annual Spring Cleanup is just around the corner!

Please note that LRS will not be taking the following items:

  • White goods (refrigerators, stoves, etc.)

  • Electronic waste

  • Yard waste

To keep City streets clean, please do not place material out for collection earlier than one week before the scheduled collection day. Please be cognizant of litter and take care to secure items so they do not blow away. 

If you have an appliance or white good (washer and dryer, refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, stove, AC unit, hot water heater, freezer, etc.) that needs removal, please contact an LRS Service Representative at 773.685.8811 or to schedule service. A charge of $40.00 per item will be charged.

Spring clean-up is also offered year-round through the LRS bulk item pickup service. LRS will take one ‘Bulk’ item that can be safely removed, per week at no charge such as tables, chairs, mattresses (must be wrapped), 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 also collect one large electronic item under 50lbs waste item (televisions, monitors, computers, speakers, etc.) or three small electronic waste items (phones, mice, radios, calculators, 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
