Volunteer

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION

At the April 3, 2018 Village Board meeting, President Blecker offered appreciation and recognition of all Village volunteers since its inception.

He introduced each committee and its current appointed members. President Blecker also announced other volunteers who currently are not appointed to committees, but have been dedicated to the Village’s vitality.

The Board and staff would like to thank all the volunteers that have dedicated their time and expertise to making this Village the success it is today. Without you, the volunteers, many events that are offered thru the Village would not exist today.

So again, a big thank you to those volunteers who continually dedicate their time to the Village.

PAINT
(liquid latex paint) will be recycled at this event. Paint has a recycling fee per container, payable by the resident with cash or check; see below for costs.

Latex paint is non-toxic but difficult to dispose of normally because you have to dry it out before placing it in your landfill trash. However, liquid latex paint can be recycled into new products with no drying out necessary by bringing it to this event!  We will also take oil paint, but please note that you can recycle it for free at the Naperville Hazardous Waste Facility. More details and costs for recycling oil paint at the event can be found at http://www.countyofkane.org/Recycling/Pages/paint.aspxhttp://www.countyofkane.org/Recycling/Pages/paint.aspxhttp://www.countyofkane.org/Recycling/Pages/paint.aspx.
