Clean-Up Day (Amnesty Day)

CLEAN-UP DAY (AMNESTY DAY)On your regular collection day during the first full week of October (October 4 through October 8, 2021), customers of Groot's single family garbage collection service are able to dispose of an unlimited amount of refuse, furniture, carpeting, bulky items and just plain junk.

All items must be properly bundled, bagged and otherwise prepared for pick-up as they would on any regular collection day. A sticker must be displayed for each of the first 5 items (garbage cans included) that you would normally tag. Any additional items will be picked up without stickers. No stickers are required of residents who use the toter service and are billed directly through Groot. Building materials, railroad ties, tires, hazardous waste and yardwaste are not included in this program. Electronics items (anything with a plug) are prohibited from landfills and cannot be picked up as part of the Clean-Up Day (Amnesty Day) program. If you have any questions, please call 630-719-2905.
