Posted on Friday November 20, 2020
At the September 21, 2020 regular meeting, the Village Board approved a five-year contract with Groot Industries for waste hauling services. The contract will begin on January 1, 2021.
Requests for proposals were opened on July 14, 2020, and Groot was determined as the most favorable proposal for the Village. The Groot contract includes a 1.98% rate decrease for residential garbage and recycling. Senior rates for customers 65 years of age and older will receive a 10% discount.
Groot will provide residential solid waste and recycling services, as well as landscape waste collection, Christmas Tree pickup, and bulk item pickup.
Cart delivery is scheduled for mid December. All residents will be provided with one 95 gallon garbage bin and one 65 gallon recycle container. Beginning year two of the contract, residents will be eligible for a one-time upgrade to a 95 gallon recyclable container.
Additional information will be provided throughout the transition.
