Amnesty Day

Annual Amnesty Day

The contract between the Village of Willowbrook and Groot Industries calls for an annual Amnesty Day. On Amnesty Day, residents can place an unlimited volume of acceptable refuse at the curb without any garbage stickers. The Amnesty Day pick-up will occur on your regularly-scheduled garbage collection day of the week. The 2023 Amnesty Day program will be held on Monday, September 25th; Tuesday, September 26th; and Wednesday, September 27th during regularly scheduled collections.

Accepted Materials

Residents can place any material at the curb except for:

  • Landscape waste (i.e. tree branches, grass clippings, leaves, brush, etc.)
  • Tires
  • Appliances
  • Construction debris
  • Electronics
  • Televisions
  • Paint
  • Any glass items must be wrapped with plastic or cardboard and taped

Any material that does not fit into a can or bag must be securely tied in bundles not exceeding:

  • 5' in length
  • 2' in diameter
  • 50 pounds in weight

Please be aware only single-family residents that have their refuse service provided by Groot are eligible for the 2023 Amnesty Day Collection.
