Curbside Composting

Residents can put food scraps and other organic composting materials out at the curb along with regular yard waste for collection.

How the Program Works

Mix the composting materials in with your regular yard waste (grass, leaves, twigs) in either a:

  • Brown paper yard waste bag with a sticker
  • Lakeshore Recycling Systems yard waste cart (subscription required)

For information about what items can and cannot be included in the compost pick up, and to enroll in the program, contact Lakeshore Recycling Systems at 773.685.8811 or email them at
