Special pick-ups must be pre-arranged for scheduling and payment. If you choose to have this done on a day other than your scheduled service day an extra trip fee will be charged.
The Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act prohibits any person from allowing or to cause mixing of any of the items listed with municipal waste that is intended for disposal at a landfill. Electronic items such as televisions, monitors, computers and printers are some of the most common items no longer allowed in the regular trash. Lakes Disposal offers collection of these items directly from your home for an additional fee; however, you must call in advance to schedule a pick-up and make arrangements. Customers also have the option to bring their items directly to drop off sites throughout the area. Avon Township has an electronics dumpster on site for your convenience. Residential customers only.
