Teutopolis, Illinois
 is a place where people and neighbors still look after each other’s kids, watch over each other’s houses, and share laughter and good times together.

Important Recycling Information

The Village of Teutopolis’ Recycling Program would like to thank the citizens and businesses for their generous donations to date and want to encourage continued support so that the Teutopolis Recycling program will be able to pay for the monthly pick-ups for the recycling program. All donations can be sent to the Village Hall at PO Box 776 or deposited in the drop box located at the recycling site.
We average 3-4 cardboard pick-ups every 2 weeks and 2 plastic dumpster pulls are picked up at the site each month. Sanitation Services charges $90 each time they pick up, which for Teutopolis is twice a month, and Chase’s Recycling is now charging approximately $80 per month to pick up our cardboard. Therefore, our monthly recycling expenses average $260 per month.
According to the Clean Air Council, on average, each one of us produces 4.4 pounds of solid waste each day, adding up to almost a ton of trash per person, per year and because of the recycling efforts in Teutopolis this amount of waste is being reduced and reused. We would hate to discontinue this service because it is such a valuable resource for Teutopolis and surrounding communities. Continue to reduce, reuse and support the Teutopolis Recycling Program.
