New Garbage Disposal Company
It has been communicated that the unincorporated areas of Avon Township will now have one company that provides a single "garbage day". This is in response to the refernda vote passing from the 2018 ballot,
"Shall Avon Township be authorized to enter into and administer a contract for refuse collection, disposal and recycling on behalf of the residents of the unincorporated areas of Avon Township as authorized by 60 ILCS 1/210-5, et seq.?"
Lakes Disposal recently found out that they won a 5 year contract. This past week was the LAST week of the old pick-up. Lakes Disposal should have dropped off new wheeled garbage cans to the transitioning customers. Residents that currently have contracts with Lakes Disposal may receive new recycle wheeled bins. Service will initially include 3 wheeled bins (garbage, recycle, and yard waste). Contracts can later be modified to remove the yard waste bin by calling Lakes Disposal. The contract will be $84 per quarter. NOTE: Lakes Disposal said that other providers for this area should be aware of the transition; however, it might be beneficial to call/e-mail your provider with reminder that you are in the affected area (unincorporated Avon Township).
Lakes Disposal only recently found out about the contract. They are currently finalizing address lists and are putting the initial bills together to be sent out this week. Lakes Disposal will have more information on their website in the future. http://www.lakesdisposal.com/

6/10/19 Highland Lake Zebra Mussel Monitoring Stations
Highland Lake has zebra mussels (ZM). We also may have a way to control them. What we don’t know is where are they and how much of a problem will they be for us. So, we have developed a research project to determine the location and concentration of the ZM.
Around the lake you will find two types of collection devices. They consist of 5 plastic plates stacked about an inch apart. The dock version is suspended under a few docks around the lake. The free-floating devices are marked with a green bobber.
PLEASE LEAVE THESE DEVICES ALONE.
Contact John Sonnenberg 847-922-5572 if there are any questions or issues with these devices.
The goal will be to identify the highest concentration and we will then plan to treat those areas in the future. Below is a picture of the bobber and the tag.
