Special Request Concerning Recyclables

To all Village of Ilion residents;

It has been brought to the Village's attention that during recent windy weather conditions we have been experiencing, that recyclable materials are being blown around various neighborhoods when placed out for collection.

Please remain aware that recyclables are NOT to be placed in plastic bags due to having to remain loose when placed in the collection vehicle.

Recyclables also need to be placed in a container WITH A LID when placed to the curb on your collection night.

Thank you for your cooperation with this issue in keeping Ilion as clean as possible.

Terry A. Leonard
