Dumping at Village Recycling Bins

The Village of Tolono would like to remind members of the community that dumping any materials on the ground around the recycling bins is not permitted regardless of the reason for doing so. Items left on the ground or prohibited items placed in the bins causes additional cost to the village. If this continues, we may be required to reduce service or even terminate the program. Please help us keep this popular program by following the posted rules.

The village would like to communicate with the gentleman in the picture above concerning his dumping. If you have any information that may aid in initiating dialog with this gentleman, please call the village office at: 485-5212
