Village of Kaneville Residential Waste, Recycling & Yard Waste Services
On January 1, 2021, LRS began as the new waste, recycling and yard waste service provider for Village of Kaneville homes!
On November 18, 2020, the Village of Kaneville Board unanimously voted in favor of a service agreement with LRS to provide Kaneville homes with weekly waste and recycling services, seasonal monthly yard waste services, bulk items and twice per year appliances collection.
LRS provides weekly services to neighboring communities and homes in the Village of Sugar Grove, unincorporated Kaneville Township and hundreds of unincorporated, non-franchised homes in the area. We are very thankful for your support of a locally-owned, private recycling and waste service company.

PERSONALLY OWNED CONTAINERS
Additional garbage or recycling that does not fit in the LRS 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.
VILLAGE OF KANEVILLE 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. LRS containers must be used first. Excess garbage may be placed in your own personal container not to exceed 35 gallons when full, with two handles and marked as garbage. No one item may exceed 50 pounds for collection. Please contact LRS Customer Service if you have items over 50 pounds and we will gladly arrange for an estimate and collection.
Loose trash or loose piles of trash will not be collected. Standard loose (13 to 30 gallons) garbage bags and bulk items that do not fit in container 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.
LRS will collect small quantities of construction material that is containerized, either in the LRS garbage cart or a 35 gallon (or less) container with two handles, not to exceed 50 pounds in weight. LRS will accept manageable bundles that are tied on both ends and fastened.
Bundles may not exceed four feet in length and width and be under 2’ in height. (4’L x 4’W x 2’H). Loose piles on construction debris will not be accepted. Construction materials/debris may not exceed the equivalent of 5 standard (35 gallon or less) garbage containers or 2 cubic yards. Special collections are available for excess materials and LRS will provide an estimate. Contact our customer service to receive an estimate and arrange for special collection. We may charge by the cubic yard or by the item, depending on what it is. Village of Kaneville residents will receive a discounted rate as a preferred community partner.
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.
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 assist!
