At the July 26 Village Board meeting, the Board approved updated rates for the weekly residential solid waste program. Rates were updated as part of the Village's five-year contract with Groot Industries. The new rates go into effect on the August 1, 2021 Village Services Bill.
This year's base rates will increase by 3 percent, in accordance with the contract. Overall, the rates equate to an additional annual cost to residents of $3.94 to $10.08, depending on the type of service residents select. The supplemental rates cover toter replacement, branch & brush program, the unlimited refuse collection program and administration/billing. A further breakdown and cost comparison can be viewed in the monthly rate chart below. Please note that the unlimited refuse collection program will return in the spring of 2022, a date is yet to be set.
Residents will see a slight increase in ancillary rates, noted in the chart below. Note: Leaf Stickers ($1.70) are used October-November and Yard Stickers ($2.82) are used April-November.
Residents may contact the Village with questions on the new rates at 630-469-5000.
