- Curbside Composting and Leaf Collection
In addition to refuse and recycling collection, LRS is providing curbside compost (yard and food waste) along with leaf collection to Village residents.
Curbside composting (yard and food waste) is collected weekly beginning April 4, 2023 through the second week of December on the same day that refuse and recycling are collected.
Now food and yard waste can be combined into the same container for composting on local fields in Lake County.
As an option for residents, LRS will provide a container for the collection of food and yard waste for $5 per month. Alternatively, you can use any lidded plastic container (50 lbs. or less) that has handles, or bio-degradable brown paper bags.
Leaf vacuuming will begin the week of October 16, 2022 and continues through December 10, 2022. Residents are asked to rake leaves to the curb by Tuesday or Wednesday morning, for pickup by LRS on your trash/recycling collection day (Tuesday or Wednesday).
Leaves must be raked to within five feet of the curb and should not be placed in the gutter or street.
