Regular Collection Schedule


Lakeshore will perform collection on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. See the map to the right for your specific collection day. All items should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. (6:30 a.m. for Deerfield and Waukegan Roads) since Lakeshore cannot guarantee a specific time the driver will be at your home.

Holiday Schedule

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
Scheduled collections that fall on or after an observed holiday will be delayed by 1 day the week of the holiday only.

Yard Waste

This service is seasonal, and will run from April 1, through the week of December 15. Yard waste stickers will be needed for bag service, and may be purchased at the same retailers that currently sell stickers. Lakeshore Recycling will accept leftover Waste Management yard waste stickers.

A sticker is not required for yard waste placed in your compost container.

Bulk Items and White Goods

One “bulk” item a week may be placed out for collection at no additional charge. Residents will be allowed to schedule the removal of white goods on mutually agreeable days, at no charge. “White” goods are generally defined as appliances like refrigerators, washers and dryers, ovens, but include other items as well.
