At the July 8 Special 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, which includes an annual adjustment based on the Chicago area consumer price index. The new rates are in effect on the August 1, 2019 Village services bill.
This year's base rates will increase by 3 percent. Overall, the rates equate to an additional monthly cost to residents of $0.68 to $1.12, 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 2020, a date has yet to be set.
Residents will see a slight increase in ancillary rates noted in the chart below. Note: Leaf Stickers ($1.60) are used October-November and Yard Stickers ($2.66) are used April-November.
Residents may contact the Village with questions on the new rates at 630-469-5000.
