CURRENT RECYCLING NEWS:

Improper battery disposal puts village staff and equipment at risk. Rechargeable batteries, button cell batteries, and lithium batteries do not belong in the garbage or in the recycling barrel - ever. Please put tape on the terminal ends and give them to an attendant at the recycling center - always.
