Please note that if garbage and plastic bags continue to be placed in with the recyclables at the Sewer Plant, the Village will be forced to take recycling away.  This is due to the increased cost of throwing away the garbage and plastic bags.  We thank you for your anticipated help so we can keep this program going.
