Roll-Off DumpstersEffective January 1, 2016, the Village refuse franchise program with Groot Industries, Inc., requires all permanent and temporary roll-off dumpsters to be provided through Groot.
Whether you are a resident who is remodeling or cleaning out your residence or a contractor at a construction site (commercial or residential), Groot must be contracted for waste removal.
Groot provides all the standard "open top" dumpsters and all sizes of compactor roll-off services. For delivery of a roll-off dumpster, please contact Groot's roll-off department at 800-244-1977.
