                  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.



The dates originally scheduled for leaf vacuuming have been modified. The dates listed in the Waste Franchise Agreement Special Edition of Smoke Signals are changing slightly. The new leaf vacuuming dates are October 26th, November 2nd, November 16th, and November 30th. These Dates were changed after input from residents who wanted the leaf vacuuming program to go further into November. (Note: Leaf Vacuuming is weather dependent, and these dates are still subject to change if need be. We ask that residents keep up to date with updates on the Village website and Village social media for any changes. Leaf vacuuming may take a couple of days to complete).

The leaf vacuuming program will involve residents raking their leaves to the grass in the parkway within 3 feet of the curb line. DO NOT RAKE LEAVES INTO THE STREET. It is important to rake the leaves in the grass next to the street because leaves in the street can cause drainage problems. On the day of leaf vacuuming SBC Waste Solutions will come by and collect leaves on the grass in the parkway. Do not put any other type of yard waste in the leaf piles.


Wednesday: Ashbrook Townhomes and Ashbrook Single Family Homes will be picked up on Wednesdays. Friday: Indian Woods Drive Townhomes, Chestnut on the Green Townhomes, and all Single Family Homes not in Ashbrook will be picked up on Fridays.
