The Village of Kenilworth will have new recycling services starting January 2013. Blue 95 gallon wheeled carts will be delivered to residents starting the first week of January.
Pickup will be by Republic Services every other Monday back door service. Flatten and crush your recycling and place directly in your cart for maximum utilization. Recycling in a bag will be considered refuse, so please do NOT place reycling in plastic bags.
According to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, up to 75% of the waste we produce may be recyclable. Consider a typical meal at home - most of the containers that food is packaged in, such as paper-based boxes, glass jars, plastic bottles and milk cartons, can be recycled if clean. Keep a recycling bin or paper bag next to your garbage can to make separating recyclables from your garbage easy and convenient.
More information on approved materials, batteries, lawn waste and more can be found at the new & improved village website.
