Village of River Grove News





The River Grove Police Department, being funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation, will be aggressively enforcing DUI, Talk & Text and seat belt violations.

Please don't Talk & Text or drink and drive and always buckle your seat belt.


Congratulations River Grove Residents
You're all doing a great job!

The success of our curbside recycling program is due to the residents who roll both carts to the curb. Those of you who and take the time to separate recycling saves everyone. By following handouts there is less trash in the recycling carts, which keeps its resale value high.
