APPLIANCE COLLECTION (ALSO KNOWN AS WHITE GOODS)
Collected twice per year in May and October.
Appliances, such as a washer, dryer, refrigerator, stove, water softener, heater or freezer, are restricted from regular garbage collection. DCRS is providing collection of household quantities for Kaneville Township residents twice per year. The special collection will take place every year the last full week of May and the last full week of October, on collection day.
Items containing refrigerant or chlorofluorocarbons, sometimes referred to as Freon, must be completely evacuated. DCRS recommends contacting a professional to ensure proper evacuation of any hazardous liquids or gases. Items collected that still contain Freon will result in an additional charge to the resident as DC is charged to properly manage it. DCRS will collect appliances for a special charge if you would like to make an arrangement outside of the two appliance collection days in May and October. Please call our customer service to receive an estimate and arrange for collection.
