Village Secures Lakeshore Recycling Systems as New Residential Waste and Recycling Hauler

The Village’s residential waste and recycling contract with Waste Management (WM) is set to expire at the end of May 2024. WM issued a statement that a contract renewal would include significantly higher rates and no fall leaf vac program. As the Village tries to keep rates down for residents, the Village issued a request for proposal to ensure residents receive the lowest rates and comparable services. With three proposals, the Village Board unanimously approved the contract with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) as it provided the lowest rates for residents, reliable services including fall leaf vacuum service, and enhanced environmental sustainability. Further communication from LRS and the Village will follow in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition. LRS will begin servicing the Village when the new contract goes into effect on June 1, 2024.
