Refuse, Recycling & Yard Waste
Unlimited Standard Service:
All residents are supplied with a 95-gallon refuse cart and a 65-gallon recycle cart. Service includes collection of one (1) bulk item per week at no additional cost. Residents are permitted to set out unlimited household waste for collection. Additional refuse beyond the cart must be placed in bags or personal containers not exceeding 35 gallons in capacity or 45 pounds in weight. For automated collections, the cart must be placed 2-4 feet apart with handles facing your house on collection day. We try to be regular with out collection times but we may arrive earlier or later on your collection day. Please have your material out by 6:00 AM to be assured pick up.
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.

Unlimited recyclable materials are collected on your current day of service. Recyclable materials in the cart do not need to be separated from each other. Please place only approved recycling items in the 65-gallon recycle cart. The collector is trained to check the contents of the cart. If there are foreign materials present, the cart will be left with a violation notice. While the recycling carts must be used, you may keep the 18 gallon recycle bin for personal use or have it recycled with a note to the driver requesting removal.

Properly bundled/bagged landscape materials will continue to be picked up by the Public Works Department.
Oversized Item Disposal:
Oversized and overweight items are any single large or extra heavy item that requires us to schedule a special pick up for an additional fee. An example of an oversized item is a piano or any item that requires two people to lift.
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 objects not exceeding 45 pounds. Carpet must be cut up in four foot lengths not exceeding 45 pounds per roll. One cubic yard will be taken at no charge per collection week.
