Refuse, Yard Waste & Recycling

New Refuse, Yard Waste & Recycling Service Provider Effective July 1, 2018

Information on these services with Republic Services, which will be offered until June 30, 2018, can be found below.

Program Overview

The Village of Lisle has contracted with Republic Services to provide residential garbage, recycling and yard waste collection services through June 30, 2018. Review the Resident's Refuse and Recycling Guide (PDF) for more information. 

Residential Solid Waste Collection and Disposal Agreement Effective July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2018  (PDF)
Garbage, recycling and yard waste are all collected once a week on Tuesday. Different trucks collect the 3 types of materials, so they are not collected at the same times. Route schedules for trucks may vary weekly.

In July 2017, the Village offered residents the opportunity to provide feedback in a Garbage, Yard Waste and Recycling Survey. The results will provide valuable information to the Village as it negotiates a new waste hauling contract in 2018.

Garbage & Yard-Waste Stickers

Residents need to purchase garbage and yard-waste stickers to place on the respective containers and/or bags for collection. Rather than charging a monthly flat fee, the pay-per-bag system encourages recycling and allows residents to only pay for what they throw away. View listing of retail and other locations that sell Village of Lisle stickers. 


The Village of Lisle's commingled, curbside recycling program facilitates the diverting of refuse from landfills.   

Recycling Carts

All residents that receive curbside service are provided with either a 35 gallon or 65 gallon recycling cart, at no additional charge. Stickers are not required on recycling carts.

Recyclable Materials

Recyclables do not need to be separated. Acceptable items for curbside cart recycling include: 
  • Aluminum/steel/bi-metal cans, foil and trays 
  • All colors of glass bottles and jars 
  • Paper (newspaper, inserts, office paper, gift wrap paper, shredded paper, flattened cardboard, magazines, telephone directories, brown paper bags, flattened food and shoe tissue boxes, paper towel and bathroom tissue rolls, junk mail, egg cartons, juice boxes and milk cartons) 
  • Plastics (numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7)
All recyclable materials should be rinsed free of visible food debris. Please do not place recyclable materials in plastic bags inside the recycling cart.
