February 23, 2021 – 2021 Yard Waste Season

Greetings from Lakeshore Recycling Systems!

Spring is approaching and yard waste and organics season will be here soon! Campton Township residents who use the yard waste and organics subscription cart programwill be automatically re-enrolled if subscribed to the cart program in 2020.  Subscription yard waste and organic cart service is pre-billed for the entire season, in advance of the season, so the fee will appear on the April invoice.

Residents who would like to newly enroll for 2021, please do so as soon as possible to take full advantage of the season cost. If you plan to cancel your subscription service, please do so before the start of season, preferably before March 15th, to avoid being billed for the season.

To establish or cancel subscription yard waste and organic cart services, please contact LRS via email at CamptonTownship@LRSrecycles.com or call Customer Service at 844.NEED.LRS.

October 29, 2020 – Pumpkin & Squash Recycling Event

Kane County, in conjunction with Pushing the Envelope Farm and Northern Illinois Food Bank, are offering a free pumpkin recycling event in Geneva on Saturday, November 7th from 9am to 12 noon, to help you reduce your seasonal holiday waste!

Jack O’Lanterns, pumpkins and decorative squashes are highly compostable and it is a real shame to just send them to a landfill, when the nutrients they contain could instead be returned to soil that will grow more healthy food!

When: Saturday, November 7th from 9am-12pm

Where: Pushing the Envelope Farm at 1700 Averill Road in Geneva

YES: We will take • pumpkins (carved or whole) • decorative squashes and gourds • corn stalks • hay bales • any other organic materials used as fall décor

NO: It is very important to keep it contaminant-free; just like food scrap composting. In other words, only the squashes, pumpkins, and gourds themselves can be composted! We will not take any Jack O’Lanterns with any of the following items in or on them: • candles • yarn hair • stickers • googly eyes • plastic ears • plastic of any kind • excessive amounts of paint

September 7, 2020 – Service Update

Due to the Labor Day holiday residential waste and recycling services provided by Lakeshore Recycling Systems will be delayed by one day during the week of September 7 – 11, 2020
Thank you and have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

April 10, 2020

Update regarding transition to LRS:

  • Please ensure all refuse, recycling, and yard waste is placed at the curb no later than 6:00 AM on your scheduled day of collection.  LRS will be adjusting and fine tuning each daily route over the next several weeks.  Residents may experience earlier or later pickup times than they have been accustomed to in the past.  With the current stay-at-home order many households are generating significantly higher volumes of waste which requires additional trips to disposal facilities and increases the time normally required to complete each collection route.  LRS is working to minimize any disruptions to collection schedules by fortifying collection routes with extra drivers and support.
  • LRS, as have all other waste haulers, has temporarily suspended collection of bulk items and white goods for safety reasons.  Please do not place any bulk items or any loose materials not within an approved container at the curb as these items will not be collected until further notice.  Residents will be provided notice when LRS is able to resume normal collection of these materials.
  • LRS has completed the initial distribution of refuse, recycling, and yard waste carts.  Many residents have requested a change in cart size and LRS is working hard at fulfilling all of these requests as expediently as possible.  LRS has dedicated staff assigned to Campton Township residents should any problems develop during the transition.  Should the need arise, residents are strongly encouraged to contact LRS via email at: CamptonTownship@LRSrecycles.com  Please include your name, address, phone number, and the reason for inquiry.  The LRS Customer Service Team hours are 7AM to 5PM Monday through Friday and Saturday 7AM to 12PM.  Residents may also contact LRS at (844) 633-3577.  Please note the LRS normal call volume has doubled due to inquiries related to COVID-19 and callers most likely will experience longer hold times.

Update regarding Removal of Waste Management carts:

  • Any resident with a Waste Management (or Speedway) cart that was not removed by April 3rd, please send an email with your name and address to the President.  Waste Management carts must remain at the curb until they are collected.
  • Waste Management will not remove wheeled carts branded by other waste haulers such as: Groot, Republic, Veolia, Advanced, etc.  Carts branded by other waste haulers must not be left at the curb at present.  Removal of these carts will be treated as a “bulk item” by LRS.  Once the suspension on collection of bulk items is lifted LRS will be able to dispose of these carts.  Residents will be provided notice when such carts may be set out for collection.
  • LRS is prohibited from servicing wheeled carts branded by any other waste hauler regardless of your service level.  LRS will only service the blue carts they have provided to each residence.

Dear Resident of Campton Township,

Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) began servicing Campton Township homes on Wednesday, April 1st.   Amidst the escalating COVID-19 pandemic, our crews and customer service have been working to ensure every home has new LRS carts. We are receiving a large number of requests to exchange carts for different sizes.  We are working as quickly as possible to exchange the carts and ask for understanding and patience as we are also taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our staff and the community during this pandemic.

The following information contain important updates and service reminders:


If you’ve requested a cart exchange:

  • Leave the LRS cart(s) to be exchanged at the curb or end of your driveway. This is extremely important.
    • If LRS reschedules a time to come back because the carts are not left curbside as instructed, a $30.00 charge will apply for the return trip.
  • Materials placed in the carts to be exchanged will be transferred into your new carts if you do not have a place to store your waste materials while you wait for the exchange(s) to occur.


Our customer service department is here to help with questions or requests!

  • We recommend sending an email to: CamptonTownship@LRSrecycles.com for non-urgent requests hold times are longer than usual due to the increased call volume.
    • Please include your name, address, phone number and request in the email.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Campton Township Solid Waste District (CTSWDD) is a separate government body.
    • Please do not call Campton Township or your local village as they are not involved in waste disposal and can only refer you to LRS or the CTSWDD.


If you still have Waste Management carts to be removed:

  • Leave EMPTY Waste Management carts at the curb or end of driveway. Waste Management will not remove carts with materials in them.
  • Send an email with your name, address and phone number to the President and the removal request will be sent to Waste Management.


  • LRS is prohibited from servicing non-LRS branded carts.  This does not include personally owned, store bought containers or carts.
  • If you wish to dispose of the non-branded LRS cart or container, LRS will dispose of each container as one bulk item once the temporary suspension of bulk-item collection has ended.
  • Once the temporary suspension of bulk item collection has ended and you wish to place your unwanted non-LRS branded cart out to be disposed of as a bulk item:
    • Place tape on the cart you want disposed of with the words “PLEASE TAKE”.
    • Notify LRS Customer Service you will be placing it out to be taken by our driver.
