SIDNEY — After three years without one, a recycling service is returning to the village.
The village removed recycling bins from a municipal parking area in July 2010 because people were leaving trash and other unacceptable items at the collection site.
The village board this week decided to begin having Baby Huey's Demolition from Mattoon come to the village for four hours on one Saturday each month to collect recyclables. The business will not charge the village for the service, and after the first month, Baby Huey's will pay Sidney 2 cents per pound on recyclable materials.
Baby Huey's will be required to keep the collection site clean and free of debris. The village will have the right to end the agreement with the business at any time on 10 days' notice.
The first date for the recycling program is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 17.
