View the most recent calendar in our Newsletter. The Village pays GFL on a monthly basis and bills end users. GFL will only collect garbage that is placed in and fits into the approved container.
If you are in need of a refuse or recycling container, contact GFL customer service at (309)821-9743.
Pickup occurs weekly, on Thursdays, and begins in the early morning hours. Toters may be put out the night before and should be away from the curb by the next day.
Placing your toter(s) for curbside pickup
Recycling pickup occurs on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. Follow the guidelines for placing your cans for curbside pickup.
Please consider recycling as a benefit to our environment, economic development, and decreased costs in garbage pickup and disposal in the future. Items collected at curbside are picked up in a single-stream process and it is not necessary to separate your recyclables by material for collection. Much of what can and cannot be recycled is pictured here:
