2022 Spring Clean Up

Spring Clean Up

5/14/22 - East Side; 5/21/22 West Side

The City of St. Charles Spring Clean Up program is back for 2022. Spring Clean Up allows residents to place unwanted items at the curb for pick up. Collection dates are May 14 for residents on the east side of the river and May 21 for the west side. This service is for residents within St. Charles city limits only.

Lakeshore Recycling will pick up items which must be placed on the curb (not in the street) before 7 a.m. to ensure pickup. Once collection crews have passed through an area they will not come back. Also, please do not place items out more than 48 hours before the collection.

If you would like to keep containers used to hold items, mark them “Do not throw can away.” They cannot be retrieved once collected. Rugs and carpet should be rolled, taped/tied and cut into segments.

These Items not Allowed and will not be Picked Up:

  • Any Items weighing more than 50 lbs.
  • Any Items larger than 5 feet in length
  • Electronics
  • Large home appliances
  • Loose batteries
  • Household hazardous waste (paints, solvents, auto fluids, pesticides, etc.)
  • Devices containing mercury (thermostats, thermometers, etc.)

  • Contractor construction debris (doors, windows, large amounts of lumber, masonry products, drywall, siding, roofing)
