Garbage Collection

Lakeshore Recycling known as LRS now supports all of Environmental and Recycling Services.  No changes for our residents regarding services.

Garbage Pick-up is on Wednesdays.  Except for the below observed holidays.

Observed Holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

If a holiday falls on a Saturday, that actual day is the observed holiday.
If a holiday falls on a Sunday, then Monday would be the observed day off.  In that case, regular trash pick-up day will be the following day.

Lakeshore Recycling takes care of our recycling of paper and cardboard products. We have a huge recycling container right next to the Village Hall for use by our Rockdale Residents only!

Recycling is free to all Village Residents!

No TVs or Electronics.

Lakeshore Recycling continues to support the link for the Rockdale Village!

Although your Garbage pick-up is free to all Village Residents, we want you to remain considerate to your neighbors and to our Waste Hauling Specialist who do the dirty task of picking up our garbage.

There will be times when you have too much. Call Lakeshore Recycling and they can help you!

Don’t be a dirty inconsiderate neighbor, be a clean and caring neighbor.


Pick it up, pack it up, clean it up!
