Annual Water Report

REFUSE PICKUP

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) 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. 

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.

YARD WASTE

Your leaves will be picked up by Homewood Disposal Company with your yard waste in the provided toter from April 1st through December 4th ONLY.  All leaves should be put in your toter with the GREEN lid or brown paper yard waste bags.  If you would like to rent additional toters for your leaves or yard waste, please contact the Village of Lansing Public Works Department at 708-895-7190.  Please note:  The Toter Program replaces vacuuming leaves at the curb. (See the section “Benefits of the Toters.”)

 

CHIPPER SERVICE

The Village of Lansing Public Works Department will continue to provide chipper service for our residents.  The chipper will pick up your large branches on the same day that your refuse is collected; however, your branches must be placed on your front parkway ONLY.  (Chipper service will no longer take place in alleys.)

Twigs may be placed in your yard waster toter. Small bundles of branches, no more than 4 feet in length may be put out next to your yard waste toter and Homewood Disposal will pick them up.



SPECIAL PICKUPS

Call Public Works if you have items such as concrete, lumber, dirt, sod or stone to arrange for a special pickup. There may be a charge associated with this service.

Tree trimming is the responsibility of the property owner.
