Do to COVID 19 and our efforts to implement social distancing all recycling drop-offs at the Public Works Facility have been suspended.  This includes sharps, prescriptions, plastic bags, fluorescent light bulbs and batteries. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.


The Village's electronic recycling drop-off scheduled to begin April 8, 2020 has been suspended for an indefinite period of time.  This suspension also includes the electronic recycling event hosted every Saturday at the Glenview Transfer Station.


Due to Governor Prizker's stay-at-home order the Village's textile recycling contractor, Simple Recycling, has suspended operations.  Effective Saturday March 21 textiles placed at the curb will not be collected for recycling.  We ask that you hold onto your textiles until textile recycling service resumes.  Currently there is no date for services to resume.   


Please contact Public Works at 847-870-5640 or email with any questions.

 We appreciate your patience and cooperation in these unprecedented times.
