What You Need to Do
Residents with Individual Driveways
Whether you are a resident living in a single-family home, or in a multi-family complex, if you have an individual driveway and would like for your subscription services to continue (of if you would like to purchase subscription services), you will need to contact LRS to set up services, as well as automatic billing. If you currently receive an invoice from Republic Services and have a refuse cart for garbage, you are currently receiving subscription service. Residents are advised to set up subscription services as soon as possible to avoid disruption in services. Cart delivery can take up to three weeks.
Property Owners/Managers of Multi-Family Complexes
Property owners or managers of multi-family complexes that do not have individual driveways or have commercial style shared dumpsters must contact LRS immediately to provide current service information to avoid interruption of services.
Information that needs to be provided to LRS includes the quantity, size and frequency of service. Rates for multi-family complex units will be provided at a reduced cost by LRS. Information on costs can be found here.
Use of Current Stickers Provided by Republic
For residents who purchased stickers issued by Republic that will no longer be useful due to the service provider change, a two-week grace period will be offered by LRS for the first two pickups, on Thursday, July 5 (normally on Wednesdays, but a day later due
to the July 4th holiday) and Wednesday, July 11. LRS will accept stickers issued by Republic Services on these two dates only.
Grace Period and Buy Back Options, New Sticker Cost
Additionally, a buy back opportunity for stickers issued by Republic will be provided between June 18 – July 20, 2018 in the Business Office at Lisle Village Hall, 925 Burlington Avenue, Lisle, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. A full refund will be provided for all unused stickers during this time. To be eligible for a refund, stickers must be unused, whole, and have the backing intact. No refunds will be issued after July 20.
Under the new contract, the cost for stickers will decrease to $3.00 each, and the same sticker can be used for both refuse and for yard waste pickup. Stickers will be available for purchase at Village Hall, 925 Burlington Avenue, Lisle, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and at local participating retailers in the coming weeks. A notice when new stickers are available for purchase will be published on the Village website at https://www.villageoflisle.org through social media channels (https://www.villageoflisle.org/705/Social-Media) and the Village E-newsletter communication. Individuals can sign up for the newsletter here: https://www.villageoflisle.org/list.aspx.

- 35-gallon waste cart, $19.15 per month
- 65-gallon waste cart, $20.15 per month
- 95-gallon waste cart, $23.95 per month

For Residents Who Choose NOT to Purchase Subscription Services
Some residents purchase their own garbage containers and choose not to purchase subscription services. They can instead purchase refuse/yard waste stickers to dispose of refuse and yard waste. The use of the sticker requires one (1) sticker affixed to up to a 35-gallon container, containing garbage bag(s), or one plastic refuse (garbage) bag. Resident-owned containers must have two handles and bags may not exceed 50 lbs. For more information, please call LRS at 630-581-8650 or email Service@LRSrecycles.com.
Recycling Containers and Services
Republic recycling containers cannot be used under the new program; the company will be collecting their carts starting the day of the last pick up on June 26. New carts from LRS will be distributed beginning in the middle of June.
LRS will continue to provide recycling containers and services free of charge for Lisle residents; a 65-gallon recycling container will be delivered by LRS to all single-family and multi-family homes with an individual driveway. A 35-gallon recycling cart will be delivered to multi-family homes with no driveways and/or those who have shared dumpsters due to space constraints. This includes the following subdivisions:
- Chelsea Condos
- Oaks at Green Trails
- Oakridge Townhomes
- McKenzie Station
- High Point at Green Trails
Carts will arrive with information from LRS attached to them. After July 1, residents should use LRS recycling containers. There are no changes in items that may be recycled at this time.
