Groot Contract Adds Services
The Village Board has approved a 5-year contract with new waste hauler Groot Industries (effective 9/11/2017, Groot Industries completed the purchase of many Republic Services accounts, including the Village of Bartlett) that will add services and save residents money. In addition to the current collection of refuse, yard waste, leaves and recycling, Groot will collect electronics for recycling and provide weekly brush pickup from April through November. Single family homes will see a savings of $52.44 per year and multi-family units will save $46.08 per year
The Village will be sending out more information regarding the brush and electronics program, prior to the start of the new contract in January 2018.
All of Bartlett's Republic Services accounts are being transitioned to Groot/Waste Connections. If you would like to view and/or pay your bills online, you will need to enroll on Groot's online bill pay website, www.wcicustomer.com/groot.
