Groot Service Changes Due to COVID-19

Due to impacts from COVID-19, the following changes apply to refuse and recycling service provided by Groot. These changes are being made to protect the health and welfare of employees and the public. Services may be further modified as the situation evolves, so please check our website and follow the Village on social media for the latest information. 

Effective the week of March 23, the following changes apply to Groot's weekly pickup service:

  • All trash/refuse must be placed in a company-designated cart, a can with handles, or bagged. Recycling must be placed in a company-designated cart. Loose, uncontained items will not be collected.
  • All bulky item/construction debris collection is suspended until further notice.
  • All white good/e-waste collection is suspended until further notice.
  • The Spring Cleanup event, originally scheduled for April 4 and 11, will be postponed and rescheduled at a later date.
  • At this time, yard waste and recycling service are unaffected; however, we anticipate that there may be changes in the future.
