During the 2022 Budget sessions with the Village Board of Trustees and staff, the decision to reduce the hours of operation of the Recycling Center was determined as a way to allow staff more time to work on projects such as tree removal/tree trimming and road/street repairs.  Due to the impact of the emerald ash borer there are many ash trees that need to be removed, and this will free up staff to increase the number of trees that can be removed and replaced annually.  Staff reviewed surrounding municipalities and their operation hours, the number of residents using the Center during the week, and the ability to service residents more efficiently during the week and came up with the recommendation to close on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
