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; however, you must
call in advance to schedule a pick-up at (877) 693-2700 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.

Special pick-ups: If you find you need extra construction/remodeling debris picked
up all at one time, there will be an extra charge per cubic yard 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.
Oversized/Overweight Items: 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
