Recycling is an issue that comes up in our community and the City of Champaign has great information about the best ways to recycle electronics in the area.
Champaign County also has annual recycling events in the fall and spring. Their fall event has been completely booked (see link above).
However you can also consult their resident’s guide for Recycle/Reuse Unwanted Electronics to see how dispose of these items throughout the year.
Saturday June 18th the Village will be hosting a dump day. Please take this opportunity to clean up and keep Gifford looking great!
Dump day will take place by the Village storage garage from 8am until Noon and will cost $10 per dump. We will also have a dumpster for metal recyclables.
Items that are NOT permitted: computers, TVs, yard waste, tires, and construction debris.
You can visit our Calendar page to keep up with all the latest events around Gifford.
Dump day is this Saturday, June 20th from 8am – 12pm. We will have a dumpster for trash and a dumpster for metal recyclables. The cost will be $10.00 per dump.
The trash dumpster will not take appliances, electronics, paint, tires, or yard waste.
The recycle dumpster will not take electronics or appliances with refrigerant in them.

The Village Board has decided to not take any further action to enact an ordinance allowing the use of golf carts on village roadways. Current state laws prohibit the use of such vehicles to be driven on any roadway unless an ordinance is passed by the local governing body allowing them. However, state laws do permit the use of Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs) to be driven on any roadway with a posted speed limit of 30 mph or less. Therefore, the Village will not restrict the use of LSVs as long as they are operated meeting state laws. These vehicles must be registered and licensed with the Illinois Secretary of State.
The State of Illinois laws do not permit the use of golf carts on public roadways unless the local government body creates an ordinance to allow them. The Village of Gifford does not currently have an ordinance allowing golf carts to be driven on public roadways. The Village Board is researching the idea again and will take action in the coming months. If you are interested in coming to our meetings, check out the Public Meetings page in the Government section for the dates and times of meetings.
