Additional garbage or recycling that does not fit in the DCRS cart may be placed neatly at the curb in waste containers. 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. If an item or items are not safe or acceptable for the driver to manage, they may be left behind with a sticker providing an explanation.
Kaneville Township Garbage Collection
There is no limit to the amount of garbage that can be placed out for collection so long as it is properly contained and placed at the curb. D CRS containers must be used first. Excess garbage may be placed in a Resident Owned Container.
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.
Recycling Carts & Co-Mingled Collection
Unlimited Recycle Collection
There is no limit to the amount of properly prepared containerized (acceptable) recycle materials that can be placed out for collection. Recycling needs to be properly prepared in accordance with the recycling guideline. All food-based recyclable containers should be rinsed. Plastic bags are not recyclable, and should not be placed in recycling carts. Click here for a DCRS Recycle Guide.
What Is Recyclable & 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!
