GARBAGE AND REFUSE COLLECTION
The Village of Lansing works with Homewood Disposal to provide refuse collection services. The program improves 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) refuse toters. These toters will take the place of your garbage cans, yard waste cans, and 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. Residents with need for additional toters or other toter concerns should contact Homewood Disposal at (708) 798-1004.
As a reminder, Homewood Disposal does not pick up garbage on major holidays. If your regular collection day falls on one of the below holidays, your garbage will be picked up the next day and all subsequent pickups that week will be delayed 1 day. For example, during the week of Memorial Day, Monday pickups will be Tuesday, Tuesday pickups will be Wednesday, Wednesday pickups will be Thursday and so on. Please keep this in mind before placing your garbage out during the week of the below holidays.
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:
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.
