            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.
