Coronavirus Fraud Schemes

We hope all of you are staying healthy and safe during this demanding time. Our colleagues around the nation are seeing an increase in coronavirus (COVID-19) fraud schemes. We are sharing a link to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) with a public service announcement regarding fraud schemes related to the coronavirus:

We urge residents to exercise caution and use good judgement when responding to messages about the current pandemic. Visit legitimate sources such as the Center for Disease Control and/or the World Health Organization for accurate information during these challenging times.

Champaign County Collection Events

Two local collection events of potential interest to Gifford residents this spring are:

  • IEPA-Sponsored One-Day Household Hazardous Waste Collection event on Saturday April 4, 2020 (free to all residents)
  • Residential Electronics Collection (REC) on Saturday May 16, 2020 (free to Gifford residents, as the village made the necessary contribution to support REC events)

For detailed information about these two events, visit the Champaign County Environmental Stewards (CCES) website. The CCES website provides information and necessary links to online registration pages for these and other collection events in Champaign County.
