Brush & Yard Waste Collection Starts 4/2
Yard Waste - Yard rakings, grass clippings, small twigs, garden material, such as flowers, vines, weeds, and garden fruit and vegetables are considered yard waste, which is collected by Groot Industries, weekly, April through November, along with your regular garbage and recycling. Residents can use generic yard waste bags with Groot stickers applied. Stickers can be purchased in local retail stores -- Ace Hardware, Jewel and Walgreen's at Rt. 59 & Stearns Road -- and at Village Hall or by mail from Groot for $2.75.
Brush Collection - Groot also will begin its seasonal brush collection in April and will continue brush pickups through November.
* the waste hauler collects an unlimited amount of bundled brush, with no yard waste sticker required.
* brush must be bundled in 2-foot by 2-foot by 4-foot long bundles, no heavier than 50 pounds, and must be tied with biodegradable twine, available at the local Home Depot and Ace Hardware.
* brush is collected weekly on the same day as your regular garbage/recycling pick-up.
Groot WILL NOT collect your home’s brush pile if it is not bundled correctly. The waste hauler will leave a tag detailing the issue with your brush pile if it is not picked up. Any brush piles left on the parkway for a period of time may receive written notice from the Village. If you have any questions regarding brush or yard waste collection, please contact Groot at 847-429-7370.
