Western Springs Awards Waste and Recycling Contract

Village Trustees have awarded a 5-year residential waste and recycling contract to Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS), beginning in January 2020.

Following feedback from a resident survey in 2018, the Village prioritized the elimination of blue bags. Residents will soon be able to choose between 35, 65, and 95-gallon waste and recycling carts, and whether they would like curbside or backdoor collection. The fee for the containers and type of service will be billed in monthly rates for Village residents, instead of paying for stickers.

Residents will receive more information on pricing, how to register for preferred cart sizes, and the collection schedule in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
