For unincorporated Fremont Township residents with Groot as your waste hauler, we want to remind you that Memorial Day Week the collection will be on Saturday, May 30. This is our first holiday in the contract so I thought you might appreciate a friendly reminder.

For unincorporated Fremont Township residents:
Groot Industries reinstated bulky item pick up, 1 item per week, on an on-going basis.
Unincorporated Fremont Township residents may opt to have Groot provide curbside collection of up to six electronic items on the second Friday of each month. This is included in the cost of your service. You must schedule the pick up with Groot at 847 693-2700.
Items requiring more than one person to collect (including televisions over 50 pounds) will require an additional fee.
Groot will collect refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, washers, dryers, dishwashers, hot water tanks, dehumidifiers and other white goods at a cost of $35.00 per item. You must call Groot at 847 693-2700 to schedule collection of white goods. Items should not be placed at the curb until the evening before the scheduled collection.

For more information, please review the Illinois EPA Interactive Curbside Bin Recycling Guide.
