The Lake Bluff Household Waste Collection Program (Program) includes the collection of refuse, recyclable materials and yard waste on a once-per-week basis all at the curbside on the same day (Standard Service) by Groot Industries.  There is no charge to residents for this level of service.  With this Program residents also have the opportunity to subscribe to the following "A la Carte" Services for an additional fee.

The following rates are effective February 1, 2016:

1 x week backdoor $13.39
2 x week curbside $13.39

These additional services will be billed by Groot on a quarterly basis. Residents who wish to request an "A la Carte" service are encouraged to call Groot (1-877-404-7668).
