Electronic Waste Recycling and Disposal: LRS provides collection, recycling and proper disposal of electronics that are banned from landfills for Village of Lisle residents.  Electronic waste (E-Waste) is collected once a month, on the first Wednesday of every month. The Village still provides monthly electronics recycling services on the third Saturday of each month. More information can be found here.  https://www.villageoflisle.org/603/Electronics-Recycling

What is considered E-Waste?  E-Waste is considered covered electronic devices (CED) by 415 ILCS 150, the Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act.  E-Waste includes (but is not limited to) computers, computer monitors, televisions, printers, keyboards, fax machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, computer mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers.

Will there be a charge for E-Waste Curbside Collection? The LRS E-Waste curbside collection program is a sticker-based program.  The same sticker that is used for garbage and yard waste is also used for E-Waste.  As the cost for handling the E-Waste varies depending on the item, there are a different number of stickers required depending on how much E-Waste is placed at the curb.

How many stickers are required for E-Waste?

  • 1 (One) Sticker – One (1) Small, E-Waste Item (such as a computer mouse or digital disc player)
  • 5 (Five) Stickers – One (1) brown paper bag (small bundle) of E-Waste items (such as a keyboard, video cassette recorder or computer mouse)
  • 10 (Ten) Stickers – One (1) TV or computer monitor

How will the collection driver know I have placed E-Waste out for collection?Please keep E-Waste separated from your regular garbage, recycling or yard –waste. If you have one item, you should place it inside a clear plastic bag or paper bag clearly marked, “E-WASTE”.  TV’s and monitors should be placed on the opposite side of the driveway or at least 5’ away from regular garbage, recycling or yard waste carts.

Village of Lisle Amnesty Day is Saturday, October 13, 2018

New this year, the Village has arranged for an Amnesty Day pick up program with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS). What is Amnesty Day? A cleanup day! On Saturday, October 13, 2018, residents who participate in curbside collection programs (subscription cart service or the sticker program) will have the option of disposing of an unlimited amount of refuse and household debris by placing it curbside for pick up. The material must be prepared in the same manner as you would for any other collection day.

To participate, residents who do not have subscription service with LRS must affix stickers to the first five items set out for disposal. Additional items placed out with the stickered items will be picked up without charge. For those that have a subscription cart service with LRS, there are no stickers required to participate – simply set items out at the curb for collection. Residents can begin to place items at the curbside starting on Thursday, October 11 at 6:00 a.m. All items must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 13 to ensure collection, as crews will be unable to return to an area once they’ve passed through. More information can be found on the LRS website here.

 Amnesty Day General Guidelines:

  • All items must be placed to the curb by 6 a.m. to ensure collection.
  • Five (5) items will need to have one sticker affixed.  Items in excess of 5 (five), do not require stickers.
  • Resident owned, approved garbage containers are considered as one (1) item.   
  • Residents who have LRS Subscription Garbage/Refuse Carts Service are exempt from having to sticker 5 (five) items.
