The site will be monitored by village employees and elected official volunteers during open hours, and it is only open to those who live within village limits. Mulch and grass clippings are not allowed. Call Village Hall with any questions - 309-526-8139.
Those wishing to dispose of appliances may contact Joel Conrad at 1.309.945.1944 or Mike DePaepe at 1.309.235.2188 for private disposal.
Another Option for Recycling Electronics
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 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.
