Refuse, Recycling & Yard Waste
Refuse: Each resident is supplied with a 65 gallon refuse cart from Groot Industries. Additional refuse that is placed outside the 65 gallon cart requires one (1) overage solid waste sticker for each can or bag.
Electronic Waste Collection - "e-waste":
The Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act prohibits any person from allowing or to cause mixing of any of the items listed with municipal waste that is intended for disposal at a landfill.
Groot Industries offers collection of these items directly from your home for an additional fee; however, you must call in advance to schedule a pick-up and make arrangements.
All items collected will be recycled and rendered inoperable. Due to the sensitive nature of some electronic items (computer hard drives or storage devices), we prefer to pick up items from the front, side, or top of drive locations.
Customers also have the option to bring their items directly to drop-off sites throughout the area, most of which are for no charge. Please visit the where and how page of our site and click on your county and then your town to search for area drop–off locations.
Bulk Items: One (1) bulk item is permitted to be placed out for collection per household, per week. Additional bulk items require a solid waste sticker to be placed on the item. This includes: furniture and large household goods, (including, but not limited to ranges, microwaves, refrigerators, dish washers, washing machines, dryers, room air conditioners, freezers, water heaters, rolls of carpet (no more than four (4) feet in length), home remodeling and repair construction materials (provided such repair/construction material is put in suitable containers or in bundles not exceeding four (4) feet in length and not weighing over sixty (60) pounds per container or bundle).
Recycling: Recycling bins are available by calling our Customer Service Department. Residents are also permitted to use 32 gallon containers for recycling material as long as it has a Brookfield Recycling Sticker attached to it. Collection is the same day as the refuse and yard waste collection.
Residents must call in advance for White Goods, and Construction Debris collections.

Yard Waste: Yard waste will be collected during the yard waste season of April 1st - November 30th. Residents may place their yard waste in biodegradable "Kraft" bags that do not exceed 33 gallons. Yard waste which is too bulky to be placed in a bag, such as branches or brush must be securely tied and bundled. Branches may not exceed 3" in diameter. Collection is the same day as the refuse and recycling collection.
