Recycling is coming to the Grove in 2021!

For the 2021 season, a single stream recycling collection service will be added to allow our community to reduce the amount of waste added to our landfills. There will be no need to sort or separate our recyclables besides putting them in the designated central dumpster which will be emptied monthly. More details will be provided in the spring.
