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.

Households have two options for landscape waste collection:
- Pay by the Bag:
Residents may choose to pay by the bag using 30-gallon yard waste bags and yard waste stickers. Households may place an unlimited number of stickered yard waste bags at the curb each week.
- Yard Waste Subscription Program:
Glenview residents have the option to enroll for the Yard Waste Subscription Program. Residents who elect the subscription program will be limited to a leased 95-gallon cart or four (4) bags of yard waste per week. Additional bags outside of the cart or exceeding the four (4) bag limit must have a prepaid sticker. Subscription yard waste customers may place an unlimited number of un-stickered bags filled with leaves only during the month of November.
Landscape waste that is too bulky to fit into a leased cart or bag (i.e., branches or brush) may be bundled and tied with twine. Bundles should not exceed 50 lbs., 2 feet in diameter, or 4 feet long. Each bundle requires one yard waste sticker.
Grass clippings, leaves, twigs, garden debris, weeds, fruits, seeds, stalks, vines are acceptable landscape items. Landscape does not include wood timbers, plastic edging, plant pots or trays, fertilizer or landscape material bags, landscape fabric, root sections, sand, gravel, sod, firewood, rocks, bark, wood chips, excess amounts of dirt or animal waste.

Special Pick-Ups and Extra Garbage:
If you find you need extra rubbish picked-up all at one time, there will be an extra charge and you must call the office to arrange for scheduling and payment. If you choose to have your clean-up done on a day other than your normal service day, an extra trip fee will be charged.
A 24-hour notice is required for Special Collections (examples: Bulk items, furniture, mattresses, grills, etc.).
One Bulk item per week is allowed such as Furniture (couch, dresser, chair) Mattress and box spring, lawn mower, bicycle, grill etc.
Construction Demolition Debris: Up to 1 cubic yard (3' x 3' x 3') of miscellaneous debris or construction material will be collected each week at no additional charge. Construction type debris should be stacked or bundled in lengths no longer than 4 feet and no larger than 2 feet in diameter. Carpeting should be in rolls no longer than 4 feet long and two feet in diameter and taped. 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. If more than 1 cubic yard please call Groot to arrange pickup. Additional charges apply.
Some items are just too big or heavy for our people to handle without special equipment; in that case, your driver may leave it so special arrangements can be made. In this event, special charges will apply. Please call and check first if you think what you have placed out falls in this category.
