Electronic Waste Recycling and Disposal

LRS provides curbside E-Waste 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 quarterly electronics recycling services on certain Saturdays.

Village of Lisle Annual Clean-Up Day is Saturday, October 2, 2021

The Village has arranged for an Clean-up Day (Amnesty) pick up program with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS). On Saturday, October 2, 2021, 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, September 30 at 6:00 a.m. All items must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 2 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.
