Waste (Garbage/Recycling) Removal

The Village of Bannockburn has a waste removal service contract with Lakeshore Recycling Services.  All residents are required to use Lakeshore Recycling, 773-685-8811 (www.lrsrecycles.com).

COVID-19 Updates (3-24-2020)

On March 24, 2020, Lakeshore Recycling Systems notified the Village about service changes that are effective immediately:

There will be NO collection of loose material, bulk items (mattresses, furniture, etc.), appliances, electronic waste or other large items at the curb due to the safety of the drivers.   This means that trash and recycling should all be contained within the containers so the driver doesn’t have to  handle stuff outside of the container.

If there becomes a driver shortage or some of the recycling sorting centers have to change their process, you may see the driver will pick up both cans with the same truck instead of separate trucks.

Lakeshore Recycling Systems provides weekly Street-side Service or Back Door Service on Monday’s. Carts are serviced from 7am to 5pm and must be out no later than 7am.  For Street-side Service, carts must be within 4 feet of the curb or edge of street pavement in front of the customer’s property. For Back Door Service, a Lakeshore Recycling Systems driver will wheel the garbage and recycle carts from the customer’s door to the street and back.
