Village of Ilion Sanitation

Trash collection is performed by an outside contractor through the "pay as you go" bag purchase system. In July 2011 the Oneida Herkimer Soild Waste Authority (OHSWA) announced a new program entitled "Recycle one." The Village of Ilion has signed a new contract with Spohn's Disposal. There have been some changes in the route pick-ups, a map & information about the Village of Ilion guidelines for soild waste, green waste, and recycling are available by clicking here . Click Here to view the New Solid Waste and Recyclables Collection Route Schedule. For additional information on the "recycle one" program or other questions you may also go to the OHSWA website at: The current outside contractor is Spohn's Disposal.

The Village of Ilion began green waste pickup starting on April 1, 2019. All residents are asked to put the green waste into dumpable containers. Pickups will be on Mondays only. Green waste pickup will end in the beginning of December.
