What About My Old Water Softener?
Now that the Village's transition to Lake Michigan water is complete, Bartlett water customers should see a noticeable improvement in water quality and should be able to eliminate their water softeners.
According to the Village's contract with Groot, the waste hauler picks up "white goods," such as refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, etc., including water softeners, at no additional charge to residents. You can place your old water softener at the curb along with your usual trash and recycling. All salt must be removed completely from the water softener before it is placed at the curb. Any unused salt can be bagged and placed in your garbage toter.
