Refuse Collection Program
Justice residents are required to use the 95 gallon cart which has been provided. Only the 95 gallon cart may be filled weekly with refuse. Groot will collect the occasional additional can or bag of refuse that may be generated and placed outside of the cart at no additional charge.
Additional carts are available for rent. Please call the Village Hall at 708-458-2520 to order your cart.
Recyclables must be placed in the Village owned 65 gallon cart on your regular day of collection as noted in the schedule above.

Bulk Items/White Goods/Appliances/Carpeting
Groot shall provide each dwelling unit receiving scavenger services with Free Bulk Item Pickup, on regularly scheduled garbage service days. Free bulk item pickup means the free collection on each occasion of up to two (2) bulk items, including without limitation, couches, dressers, cabinets, dining room table and chairs and/or household appliances commonly known as 'white goods', including without limitation, stoves and refrigerators. Three or more bulk items set out for collection per week will be charged per item with payment prior to collection. Carpeting will be an additional fee and must be cut up in four foot lengths and rolled in a manageable size for the driver to safely collect. Please call Groot toll free at 888-485-0900 to arrange a pickup. Groot’s supervisor will provide an estimate to collect carpeting and large quantities of refuse placed out for collection.
Yard Waste Collection – Mondays
Groot will collect unlimited volumes of yard waste with the season from April 1st to November 30th. Grass clippings, leaves, twigs, garden debris, weeds, fruits, seeds, stalks, vines may be placed at the curb on the regularly scheduled pick up day in Kraft paper bags. Bags must be rolled and crimped closed and be easily lifted to waist height and not exceed 50lbs. Brush and branches up to 6 inches must be bundled with twine (wire or plastic is not acceptable) 4’ or less in length and 2’ or less in diameter at the base and easily lifted to waist height.

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.
