Never pour grease down sink drains or into toilets.
Scrape grease and food scraps from trays, plates, pots, pans, utensils, and grills and cooking surfaces into a can or the trash disposal.
Pour fats, oils and grease into a container such as an empty jar or coffee can. Once the materials have cooled and solidified and the container is full, secure the lid and place it in the trash.
Don’t put grease down garbage disposals, put baskets/strainers in sink to catch food scrapes and other solids, and empty the drain baskets/strainers into the trash for disposal.
Communicate with your friends and neighbors about the problem of grease in your sewer system and how to keep it out. The solution starts right in your home with your actions.

- During snow operations, the Electronic Recycling location will be closed.
No business or commercial Electronics are accepted.
All residents receive one (1) 65-gallon recycling cart at no charge. Any recyclable items outside of the recycle cart will be collected as long as it is properly prepared (35-gallon container, smaller rigid container not to exceed 50 lbs).
Additional recycling carts (65-gallon and 95-gallon) are both available for an annual fee.
Please contact Groot at 847-693-2700 for pricing.
No parking on Village streets from 2:00 am to 6:00 am.
If the snow has not been removed, please continue the “no parking” restrictions until snow removal has been completed.
When there is a snowfall of more than two inches, please do not park on the street. This gives the Public Works Department the opportunity to plow the streets.
Please DO NOT throw snow from your property into the streets since this can create a hazardous condition.
When shoveling or plowing snow from your driveway, pile the snow to the left side of the driveway (when facing your house). This will help prevent snow from accumulating again on your driveway when the snow plows come through your neighborhood.
