GARBAGE AND REFUSE COLLECTION

The Village of Lansing is pleased to announce improvements to our refuse collection services.  The program will improve efficiency by simplifying the collection of refuse, recycling and yard waste as well as dramatically improving the aesthetics of our streets and alleys. Each Lansing single-family residence has been provided with three (3) new refuse toters.  These toters will take the place of your garbage cans, yard waste cans, and your recycling bins. If you do not have alley access and will be receiving curbside pickup, place your toters within 4 feet of the curb and clear of surrounding obstructions. The end of the toter where the lid opens should face the curb and the handle should be facing away from the curb. Toters should be at least 2 feet apart from each other. If you have alley access, place toters alongside the alley and not on the side of a garage. 


TotersTogether

The crews will take furniture and appliances with your normal garbage pickup; however, please call the Public Works Department at 708-895-7190 to arrange for a special pickup if you have items such as:

  • Concrete
  • Lumber
  • Dirt
  • Sod
  • Stone

Please separate and pile the material. This type of cleanup may require a payloader and a dump trunk to haul it away. There may be a charge to cover dumping fees for this type of pickup which is in excess of normal household garbage.
(Large clean-up piles).
We are proud of our service in the community and we are always striving to do our best. Thank you for your cooperation.
