HIGHLAND PARK – Starting August 1, Highland Park residents who have residential volume-based service with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) or use stickers to have their curbside waste collected will no longer use waste stickers for regular waste disposal. All current LRS refuse carts contain Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips that will track the number of times a refuse cart is collected each month. Transitioning to a scanning program will provide residents with the convenience of no longer purchasing waste collection refuse stickers.
Refuse stickers will not be accepted for regular waste pick up after July 31, but residents may still use stickers on items not included in regular waste disposal collection including excess waste that does not fit in a resident’s container, yard waste services, food scrap services and on all other containers that are not provided by LRS. Residents should expect to see charges on their invoice for volume-based service in place of purchasing stickers.
Refuse stickers will be refunded at City Hall through November 20. If you plan on returning waste collection stickers, stop by the Finance Window in City Hall, 1707 St. Johns Avenue. Individual or full sheets of stickers will be accepted.
