Landscape Waste and Compost Collection Starts April 1

Lakeshore Recycling Services (LRS) offers yard waste collection and composting from April 1 to December 15. Landscape waste service and composting service are provided on the same day as refuse and recycling collection. 

Yard waste is to be placed in a 30-gallon biodegradable paper bag, bundled or placed in a metal or plastic container up to 33 gallons in size. Bags, bundles, and containers may not exceed 50 pounds and are to be placed at the curb for collection. Containers must be marked as yard waste. Bundles cannot exceed 4 feet in length and 2 feet in diameter. Branches within each bundle may not exceed 3 inches in diameter.

Highland Park’s composting service allows residents to dispose of compostable materials such as fruit and vegetable peels, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper napkins and yard waste in a curbside bin. There are two options for utilizing this new service: volume-based (stickers) and subscription (monthly payment). Any customer is eligible to participate in this program – whether you use volume based or weekly pick up for your trash.

To signup for either service, please call LRS at 773.685.8811. 

Countertop compost containers are available for purchase at City Hall for $5.
