Cross-Connection Control Survey
Included in the June Nosy Neighbor was a Cross-Connection Control Survey for all property owners in Orion. The Illinois Enviornmental Protection Agency requires all property owners who have water services connected to the village's public water supply to complete the survey and return to the village. The purpose of the survey is to determine whether a cross-connection may exist at a home or business.
To-date, only 77 out of approximately 800 surveys have been returned. If you have misplaced the survey included in the Nosy Neighbor, you may contact Village Hall at 309-526-8139 to get another copy.
Please abide by our request to complete the survey. Your action may help the village prevent accidental contamination of its drinking water system. Your compliance is appreciated.

Another Option for E-Waste
Eagle Enterprises Recycling, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of an electronics collection site at its facility in Galva. Beginning January 2012, the number of electronic items banned from landfills will be expanded, making it ever more difficult to dispose of those televisions, computer monitors, printers, and the like.
Electronic recyclables cannot be combined with residential recyclables, so DO NOT put electronics in your curbside bin. Electronics can only be disposed by transporting them to 510 S. E. Industrial Avenue, Galva, during Eagle's business hours of 6:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on Saturdays. There is no charge for bringing items to the collection site.
Don't Miss Your Chance to Recycle Curbside
Curbside recycling is available to all single family homes in Orion. To obtain a roll-out container, call Eagle Recycling at 1.888.932.2936. The company will deliver the container directly to your house. Pick up is every other Thursday. You can find the pickup dates by clicking on our calendar tab at the top of this page or get a copy at Village Hall.
The fee to participate is $3.25 per month and is automatically added to your monthly utility bill. Seniors who qualify for the senior property tax freeze through the Henry County Assessor's office will not be charged the fee. The village will obtain an updated list from Henry County once per year.
