Garbage and Recycling

New Residential Garbage and Recycling Contract Begins May 1

On May 1, Groot Industries began weekly garbage, recycling and yard waste collection service for City of Naperville residents. 

There is no change to your current collection day. The time of your pickup may vary for the next several weeks as Groot transitions into the Naperville routes. You do NOT need to purchase new garbage or recycling carts. 

Please refer to the Yard Waste Collection page for information on how this transition will impact the yard waste collection program. 

The City of Naperville contracts with Groot Industries for residential garbage collection and curbside recycling services. The City offers the Naperville Environmental Collection Campus located at 156 Fort Hill Drive, which includes three different recycling options to provide additional sustainable disposal opportunities. The facilities include a Recycling Drop-Off Center, Household Hazardous Waste Facility and Electronics Recycling Facility. See the information below for additional information and for hours of operation.

You "Can" Contribute to Curb Appeal

You "Can" Contribute to Curb Appeal

Part of the continued curb appeal in our City is keeping garbage and recycling cans and carts out of sight except for when it is your refuse collection day. Placing these items in your garage or along the side of your home not visible from the street is a simple and recommended way to keep our City looking neat. Another option is to provide screening for your carts, such as planting a small bush or shrub in front of them. If your household needs have changed, consider whether a different cart size is right for your current and future needs.
