Exclamation Wiring 120v to central vac outlets

I'm installing a central vac system and the outlets have both connections for low voltage (on/off) signaling and 110V to power the vacuum head motor. The outlets that get wall mounted only have two wire connections. I'm pulling Romex into the plastic vac box, so what do I do with the Romex ground?

Thanks guys!

If there is no place to connect the ground wire.... just leave it folded out of the way.

Is it legal to have a hanging ground wire?

Yes. If grounding is not necessary for device you connect to, you can just leave ground wire unconnected.
