Trash is removed on a given day of the week by address.


Recycling in Lake Bluff is done in single stream fashion, that is, all recycleables are put in the same container, no need to sort.

Recycling has a separate container from trash, and is picked up on the same day trash by a different vehicle.


Due to unforeseen difficulties in operating a program for public collection of electronics under the IL Electronics Products Recycling and Reuse Act, SWALCO announces that, effective December 18, 2014, SWALCO supported residential electronics recycling collection sites within Lake County (including Lake Bluff) will begin to shut down and stop accepting electronics until further notice. Fortunately, Midwest Computer Recycling, located at 101 Skokie Valley Rd., Lake Bluff (near the intersection of IL Rt. 176 and U.S. Rt. 41) has agreed to recycle household electronics for Lake Bluff residents free of charge for now. Midwest Computer Recycling is open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., to drop off electronics equipment and is also available by calling 847-582-1730.
