Spring 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
