Yard Waste Program:
Groot will collect unlimited yard waste starting April 1st through November 30th. Each bag or bundle set out for collection must have attached one yard waste sticker. Grass clippings, leaves, twigs, garden debris, weeks, fruits, seeds, stalks, vines may be placed at the curb on the regularly schedule pick-up day. Bags must be rolled and crimped closed and be easily lifted to waist height and not exceed 50 pounds. 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. Yard waste does not include wood timbers, plastic edging, plant pots or trays, bark, wood chips, fertilizer or landscape material bags, landscape fabric, root sections, sand, gravel, sod, firewood or animal waste.

CouchBulk/Oversized Items: 
Groot will take two large items per week at no additional cost. Bulk items include: boxes, barrels, crates, furniture, mattresses/box spring and similar items that do not fit into a proper container and can be safely collected/lifted by one driver without assistance. Exception include items which are banned from direct disposal into a landfill. (Examples: appliances, tires, car batteries, televisions and electronic waste.) For bulk items in excess of 75 pounds, residents should call Groot to schedule a pick-up in advance.

Oversized and overweight items are any single large or extra heavy item that requires Groot to schedule a special pick-up. 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 pick-up.

Construction/Demolition Debris: 
Groot will collect three bundles or cans of construction/demolition debris per week at no additional cost. All material must be cut to no more than 4 feet in length and no larger than 2 feet in diameter. For the safety of the collector, all debris must be bagged or bundled and free of nails and sharp object not exceeding 50 pounds. Carpet must be cut up in four foot lengths not exceeding 50 pounds per roll.

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 visit www.swancc.org for more information on how to dispose of these items. The following items are banned from landfills:

  • Automobile Tires
  • Automobile Batteries
  • Explosive, Toxic, Hazardous & Volatile Waste
  • Flammable Waste
  • Gasoline, Motor Oil, Anti-Freeze
  • Large Automobile Parts & Wheels
  • Acids & Poisons
  • CFL Bulbs, Florescent Bulbs
  • Electronics Waste
  • Swimming Pool Chemicals

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 will provide free twice per year collection of electronic waste at a central location within the Village. The date will be predetermined by the Village and Groot.

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.
