The residential curbside garbage-collection service in unincorporated Lake County is changing effective Monday, October 6, 2014. The new service will offer residents a 1-1-1 curbside collection program, which consists of once-per-week trash, one-per-week recycling and once-per-week yard waste collection service. The new program also will provide homeowners with two carts; one 95-gallon cart for trash and one 65-gallon cart for recycling at no additional cost. Maintenance of the cart is also included at no cost.
