  • Keep in mind, brush and limbs greater than 2 inches in diameter must be in bundles not longer than 4 feet in length, and not exceeding a total of 18 inches in diameter, or more than 50 pounds.
  • Compost stickers are available at City Hall and DPS.

Recycling Program
The city of Lincoln Park has partnered with GFL Environmental, USA to bring a new comprehensive recycling program to all Lincoln Park residents.

The program officially started during the month of October with all other services remaining unchanged.

All items for pick up (including trash, recycling, and yard waste) must be out by 7:00 a.m.
Curbside Etiquette
Why Was My Trash Missed?
One of the most common reasons why our rubbish collection contractor misses pickups is because they simply did not see it!

It is important to place your cart so that the opening faces the street with the lid completely closed to avoid rubbish from falling in to the street. Be mindful to make sure the cart is not blocked by a vehicle or other curbside items.

Yard waste must be placed in designated paper yard waste bags or properly marked containers. Yard waste stickers are available at City Hall.

The yard waste truck will not stop to look in unmarked containers. All branches and twigs need to be cut in 3 foot lengths and bundled with twine. Filled bags must be less than 50 lbs. Please remember, dirt is not considered yard waste and will not be accepted.
