Refuse Cart Rental and Recycling Cart Upgrades Now Available

March 27, 2012
The Village of Palatine in partnership with Groot Industries, is pleased to announce a refuse cart option to the single family households in the Village.  Residents may rent a 95 gallon refuse cart directly from Groot for an annual fee of $30.00*.  Payment will be required for the prorated amount for 2012 prior to cart delivery.  The cart rental program is optional and is not required.  Groot will invoice subscribing cart rental residents annually in January for 2013.  Please note the following program highlights:
  • 95 gallon cart is optional.  Residents are NOT required to rent a cart.
  • Residents with 95 gallon carts will continue to receive unlimited refuse collection.  Additional refuse outside of cart must be bagged.
  • Smaller sizes of 65 and 35 gallon carts are available for households that generate minimal amounts of refuse.
  • Only carts provided by Groot are permitted for use.
  • Call Groot directly at 800-244-1977 to order your cart today.  Please do not contact the Village.
* Cart fee subject to annual increase per service agreement.
  • Palatine residents who wish to increase the size of their recycling cart may do so at no charge by calling Groot directly at 800-244-1977.
  • Remember to keep the Refuse and Recycling Cart four feet apart at the curb for automatic collection.
To view sample cart sizes (95, 65, and 35 gallon carts) visit Village Hall, Main Lobby, at 200 E. Wood Street
