Each single family household will be supplied with a 65 or 95 gallon refuse cart for collection on Tuesdays. Residents may exchange their cart for a smaller cart for which a change fee may apply. Residents are permitted to set out unlimited household waste for collection. Additional refuse beyond the cart must be contained in refuse cans or bags not exceeding 35 gallons in capacity or 70 pounds in weight. Additional 95 gallon refuse carts are available for rent for an annual fee. We try to be regular with our collection times but we may arrive earlier or later on your collection day. Please have your materials out by 6:00 AM to be assured pickup.
Solid Waste Items Not Collected:
Illinois law prohibits the disposal of certain waste in landfills. In addition, other items should be disposed of by other methods. Please observe these regulations, or your trash will not be collected. Please click here for more information on how to dispose of these items. The following items are banned from landfills: automobile tires, automobile batteries, explosives, toxic items, hazardous & volatile waste, flammable waste, gasoline, motor oil, anti-freeze, large automobile parts and wheels, acids & poisons, CFL bulbs, florescent bulbs, electronic waste, swimming pool chemicals and paint in liquid form.
Bulk Items & Oversized/Overweight Items:
Residents of Bartlett may set out bulk items to be collected on the same day as their regular collection day at no additional charge.
Groot will collect small amounts of construction material that is in proper containers, not to exceed 35 gallons, weighing less than 70 pounds (unless placed in optional 96 gallon container furnished by contractor) or bundled into 4 foot bundles not exceeding the 70 pounds, and secured on both sides. This debris from the small remodeling projects cannot exceed 2 cubic yards, the equivalent of 10 normal trash containers. This material will be picked up at no additional charge to the customer.
In the event large amounts of construction materials are placed at the curb, which exceed 2 cubic yards, the customer shall be responsible to arrange a special pick up for the removal and disposal of those materials for an additional charge.
- We will consider a box spring and mattress as one large item.
- Carpeting should be in rolls no longer than 4 feet long and two feet in diameter and taped. We consider 5 rolls to be one large item.
- In general try and keep any loose material bundled and neat so we can pick up.
- Stone, concrete, and dirt can only be picked up in containers and cannot weigh more than 45lbs. per container. Two containers will be considered one large item.
Oversized and overweight items are any single large or extra heavy item that requires Groot to schedule a special pickup. An example of an oversized item is a piano or any item that requires two or more people to safely lift. There will be an additional cost for oversized items. Please call Groot to schedule a pickup.
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 unlimited items directly from your home; however, you must call in advance to schedule a pick-up and make arrangements.
All items collected will be recycled and rendered inoperable. E-waste items will be collected curbside.

Bartlett residents may purchase stickers to dispose of landscape waste. Stickers can be purchased in retail stores, Village Hall, or by mail.
The sticker must be affixed to each 30-gallon biodegradable landscape bag or container not exceeding 35-gallons or 50 pounds in weight. Landscape materials are collected on your regular collection day. Landscape which is too bulky to be placed in a bag, such as branches or brush must be securely tied, (with biodegradable twine) bundled not to exceed 4 feet in length, no larger than 2 feet in diameter and must not weight more than 50 pounds. Landscape materials will be collected April through November each year. Acceptable landscape includes: grass clippings, leaves, branches, brush, garden plants, flowers, weeds, vines, garden vegetables and garden fruit. Unacceptable landscape includes: fence posts, railroad ties, firewood, sod, earth, wood chips, bark and rocks.
Christmas trees will be removed on your regular pick up day for a three week period following Christmas at no additional charge. Trees that have decorations or that are put out for disposal after this time period will be picked up but not recycled.
NO PLASTIC BAGS MAY BE USED FOR LANDSCAPE WASTE.
Fall Leaf Pick Up
In addition to the regular yard waste pick up there will be a Fall leaf pick up beginning annually on October 1st and ending November 30th. The leaves shall only be contained in generic yard waste bags. There will be no limit in the number of bags. Leaves will be collected at no additional charge and a sticker is not required.
Groot will collect un-stickered bundled brush with regular yard waste collections on a weekly basis. No yard waste sticker is required for bundled brush. Brush must be bundled in 2 feet by 2 feet by 4 foot long bundles. Brush is collected weekly during the season (April-November).
State laws require us to collect any white good type of appliances such as refrigerators, ovens, washers etc. separately and recycle. There is no charge for this service.
