In 2021, the City approved a 3-year contract extension with LRS (formerly Lakeshore Recycling Services) to provide garbage, recycling and yard waste removal services for Wheaton residents. The contract included price adjustments for the second and third years of the contract. Prices will increase 2% per pickup, which equates to a total of between $0.04 and $0.10 per pickup depending upon the type of service and cart size.

Starting Oct. 1, 2022, the new prices per pickup for garbage, recycling and yard waste will be as reflected under "Year 2":
