The 11th Annual National Night Out in the Village of Campton Hills will be held on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 from 6-8pm. 

Interested in volunteering for the Village, but can't commit long term. This opportunity is for you. The Community Relations Committee is looking for volunteers to help at the National Night Out event. There are many opportunities and time slots available. If you'd like to volunteer, please contact Tracy Johnson at 630-584-5700 or email to tjohnson@villageofcamptonhills.org.

The location of the event will be on School Street between Rt. 64 and LaFox Road.  



Solicitors in the Village


The time of the year is here where solicitors are in the area.

If a solicitor knocks on your door, ask to see their Village permit. If they can not provide a permit, please check the website, www.villageofcamptonhills.org. Here, on the home page, we list the permits that are issued and their expiration. 

If they are not permitted, please call the police and leave your address where the solicitor was active and an officer will come to the area and try to locate them and advise them of the requirements here in the Village for soliciting.

Kane County
Annual Recycling Extravaganza 

 

Kane County is once again hosting an annual recycling extravaganza event that includes free document shredding on Saturday, July 8th, 2017 from 8am – 12 noon, at 540 S Randall Road in St. Charles. Please read below information to make the most of your event experience!
 

Tips for optimal event experience

  1. Please arrive between the hours of 8am and 11:45am for optimal service. Please do not arrive early, as it creates a pile up before we even begin. Thank you.

  2. It is recommended that you approach on the North-bound side of Randall, coming up from 38 towards 64, so that you can easily turn right, into the event at the Kane County Traffic Court building. If you approach on the South-bound side of Randall, you may have difficulty turning left into the event site across the oncoming traffic, and the lineup creates a traffic flow problem on Randall.

  3. Please check out this MAP of the event to see the order in which things will be unloaded so that you can pack your car accordingly. This helps us to serve you more efficiently.

  4. Stop into Colonial Café for brunch after recycling! You will receive a discount coupon as you go through the event that you can use right away!

Prepare to have material unloaded in this order – MAP
