            SBC Waste Hauling and Our Village 



After months of discussion, the Village Board of Trustees has awarded its first Waste
Hauling Franchise Agreement to SBC Waste Solutions.  Refuse, recycling, and landscape
waste removal will continue in a manner similar to existing services. Additional options
will be available to residents at reduced pricing.
Previous to this contract, no Village Waste Hauling Franchise Agreement existed and
residents were on their own when it came to setting up waste hauling services. Due to
this, Indian Head Park residents have paid a higher price for waste hauling services than
residents of other communities in the area. The Village sought to establish this waste
hauling contract to negotiate lower prices for residents and to increase service options.

Groot will be cancelling the individual accounts of residents that are part of the new Waste Franchise Agreement.

Upcoming Events

First Two Weeks of Yard Waste Collection (April 2nd and April 9th): The first two weeks of yard waste collection in 2021 will be free. Yard waste will be collected on your regularly scheduled pickup day. For these first two weeks, a sticker will not be required for yard waste to be collected, however, brush bundles should still be tied together and under 4 feet in length.


Village Cleanup/Refuse Amnesty Day (April 16th): In the middle of April the Village will have its first annual cleanup day with SBC Waste Solutions. During your regularly scheduled pickup day residents are able to put up to 5 yards of waste material out to be picked up for 3 stickers. This includes bulk items like chairs, tables, or other pieces of furniture, as well as normal refuse items. Yard Waste, Electronics Waste, and White Goods are not included in the Cleanup Day.


Free Electronics and Paint Recycling Day (June 12th 9 AM-1 PM): On this Saturday the Village and SBC Waste Solutions will be hosting an electronics and paint drop-off. From 9 AM-1 PM, residents will be able to drop off paint and electronics at the Public Works Building (11308 70th Place) to be recycled. Residents will need to provide proof of residence when dropping off paint and electronics, a driver's license or piece of mail would work.
