Welcome to Prairieland Disposal & Recycling
Prairieland Disposal & Recycling is an environmentally-conscious waste hauler and recycler serving the greater Lake, McHenry and Cook counties.

Our mission is to provide honest, cost-effective waste collection services while maintaining our reputation as stewards of the environment. We use biodiesel fuel in our vehicles, and much of the residential and commercial waste we collect is recycled.


Christmas and New Year's Day Schedule
If your regularly scheduled pickup falls on Christmas or New Years day, service will be delayed by one day. Our office hours for Christmas Eve and New Years Eve are 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

From weekly pick-up services to custom-tailored collection programs, we're here to help. Call our live customer service representative today at 847-381-9300 to learn how Prairieland Disposal & Recycling can help you with your individual needs.

Electronic items such as LCD monitors, computers and printers are some of the most common items that will no longer be allowed in regular trash. See link for a full list of acceptable/ non-acceptable items and note television drop-offs require a fee. Prairieland can schedule an at-home or commercial collection service for a fee, or you may bring them to our on-site drop-off located at 21988 N. Pepper Road in Lake Barrington at no charge.

Athletic shoes! We now collect and recycle unwearable athletic shoes at our Lake Barrington drop-off facility. And we collect other styles of used — but wearable — shoes and boots and donate them to charity.
