There will be no recycling collection for Niles residents during the week of January 28. This is an update to previous emergency alerts. Residents should not place their recycling cart at the curb this week, only their garbage container.
Garbage pickup will still take place, delayed by one day as previously announced. Thursday collections will instead take place on Friday, and Friday collections will take place on Saturday.
Why is recycling service being cancelled this week? Landfill closures on Thursday will cause Groot to suspend a second day of service this week. Skipping recycling collections will allow Groot to catch up on garbage collection, which is more critical due to sanitary concerns.
For questions relating to garbage pickup, you can contact Groot (800) 244-1977 or Niles Public Works (847) 588-7900.
The information in this update is current as of 6:30pm, Wednesday, January 30, 2019.
