Recycling Plan






In other news, the board discussed the possibility of the village working with a recycling firm to provide electronics recycling now that state statutes prohibit the disposal of electronic equipment into landfills.

The village currently has an oil recycling program from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month from April to October except in August when it is held at the same time on the second Saturday.

Village officials suggested that electronics recycling could be provided at the same time as used oil recycling. Rather than holding it every month, however, electronics recycling could be held in June, August and October.

The village is looking into the possibility of hiring Vintage Tech Recyclers to handle the proposed electronics recycling. The company handled electronics recycling during the recent Hampshire Area Chamber of Commerce annual home and business exposition at Hampshire High School.
