Starting April 1, 2020, Fremont Township's waste hauling services are provided by Groot Industries, Inc., Illinois' largest independent solid waste management services provider. The company has provided solid waste collection and other vital public services to northeastern Illinois municipalities and businesses since 1914.

Today, waste management processes focus on integrated solid waste management, including source reduction of waste, recycling, landscape waste management, and a multitude of special items including electronic waste, white goods, fluorescent lamps, and construction and demolition debris. The goal of integrated waste management is to minimize, as much as possible the amount of waste that must ultimately be disposed. Groot Industries has the experience not only in collecting solid waste but also in processing and marketing a wide range of materials.

NOTE: The Estates of Ivanhoe and the Woods of Ivanhoe currently have a single waste hauler and were excluded from this contract.

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.
