Kaneville Township Residential Waste and Recycling Services

On Tuesday, May 21, 2019, the Kaneville Township Board of Trustees passed a resolution on behalf of the Kaneville Township residents. This resolution represents the Township Board selection of DC Recycling Systems as the new and exclusive waste and recycling service provider effective July 1, 2019. This program does not include service for Village of Kaneville residents.

Effective July 1, 2019, DC Recycling Systems (DCRS) will be the exclusive service provider for garbage, recycling and yard waste services for residents in Kaneville Township.

DCRS is very proud to partner with the Kaneville Township community and looking forward to providing you excellent service for years to come. DC Recycling Systems is located in Cortland, IL and is a Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) company.

Beginning the week of July 1, 2019 and going forward, garbage and recycling will be collected on Tuesday, every week, in Kaneville Township. Service times may vary. Please have all materials placed curbside by 7AM to ensure collection.

HOW DO RESIDENTS OF KANEVILLE TOWNSHIP BENEFIT?

  • Road Preservation – The Township roads are traveled on by several haulers each week. One street may have over 12 trucks per week as waste, recycling and yard waste are all serviced by different trucks and several different haulers. Having only one hauler will preserve the roads and keep maintenance costs down.
  • Lower Rates/More Services – The Township Board negotiated new rates that will save the average Township resident anywhere from $70.00 to $150.00 per year, while most residents will also be receiving additional services, such as unlimited garbage and recycle collection, bulk item collection, twice per year appliance collection and complimentary carts for waste and recycling. The rate effective July 1, 2019 for all included services will be $18.75 per month.
  • Complimentary Services for the Township Building and Ball Park -The Township will also receive complimentary waste and recycling services at the Township Building and Park from DC Recycling Systems as well as LRS Pitstop portable restroom services.
  • Domestic Recycler – DC Recycling Systems is known to provide excellent service, with a hometown touch. In addition, DC is also part of the Lakeshore Recycling Systems family. This means the Township has partnered with a company that recycles 99.5% of the materials collected in the USA.

DOES EVERY TOWNSHIP RESIDENT HAVE TO USE DC RECYCLING SERVICE FOR WASTE AND RECYCLING SERVICE?

As of July 1, 2019, every Kaneville Township resident will be required to have (and automatically receive) waste and recycling service, however, no one will be forced to recycle or put your waste out every week. Properties zoned as agriculture with commercial style containers provided by DC Recycling Systems may continue utilizing those containers and may be excluded from this program. These include 2, 4, 6 and 8 cubic yard containers. Commercial or industrial properties are not included in this program.

WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY PAID IN ADVANCE FOR SERVICE I HAVE WITH MY CURRENT PROVIDER?

The Township has notified all haulers currently providing service (prior to July 1, 2019) of the change. This is a legally binding change that haulers must honor therefore, residents who have paid in advance should be fully refunded for services not rendered. If you have a different service provider you should contact them to ensure the services are stopped as of June 30, 2019. Residents who have DC Recycling Services prior to July 1st, will receive the new rate effective July 1st and any prepaid amounts will be adjusted on your current account.

WILL DC RECYCLING SYSTEMS SERVICE A CONTAINER WITH A DIFFERENT COMPANY NAME ON IT?

For various reasons, DC Recycling Systems will only service containers that are branded with DC Trash, DC Recycling Systems or Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS). We cannot service containers that are the property of a different company.

INVOICES, PAYMENTS AND RATE INCREASES

Invoices are sent in advance on a quarterly basis for services. Late fees will apply for payments received late. As nearly all costs associated with providing the service increase on a regular basis, rates are increased on an annual basis in July.

AUTO-PAYMENT OPTION

DCRS offers an auto-pay option for residents who choose to establish this method of payment. Once you receive an invoice from DC, you may choose this option. If you would like to elect for auto pay, you may do so by going to Payments@LRSrecycles.com. New users will create a user name and password.

If using your own container for additional waste, it must have two handles and not exceed 35-gallons or 50 pounds when full, for safety reasons.

Loose trash or loose piles of trash will not be collected. Standard loose (13 to 30 gallons) garbage bags will be accepted so long as they are less than 50 lbs. We encourage the use of containers to prevent unwanted varmints and loose trash from blowing.

WHAT IS RECYCLABLE AND WHAT IS NOT RECYCLABLE?

Not all recyclable materials are necessarily recyclable with the curbside collection. Recyclable materials collected with the curbside program are taken to a material recovery facility with equipment designed to handle certain materials. Plastic grocery bags and shredded paper, for example, will damage the equipment used to sort materials. Feel free to call our customer service if you ever have questions about recycling. We are a recycling company and happy to help!
