Village Wide Spring Garage Sales
The Village will hold their annual Garage Sale starting on Friday May 3rd - May 4th, 2024
The Public Works Department will begin picking up YOUR unwanted treasures on May 6, 2024. Please be respectful of this service offered solely to Village residents. Do not invite non residents to bring their unwanted treasures in for the Village Pick up. Public Works will only pick up once at your residence. Please ensure that all items are out on Monday, May 6th for pickup. A New Rule: limit of two (2) toilets per household will be picked up and they must be busted up and boxed for Public Works.
Safety guidelines are as follows:
All items must be in either a bag, box, carton, or some type of container.
If the “pickers” go through your items and scatter them across your yard or ditch it is your responsibility to pick up these items and place them back in a container for our crew to remove them. Our crew will not pick up household garbage, feces, electronics, appliances, paints, tires, and landscape wastes just to name a few. A complete list is at the office of unacceptable items given to us by the Sangamon Valley Landfill. If any of these items are in your pile, they will be left by Public Works and you will need to dispose of them yourself. An example of unacceptable items are waste oil, tires, batteries, yard/landscape waste, appliances, electronics, televisions, fluorescent light bulbs, septic tank waste, bulk liquids, paint, medical/hospital waste, flammable or volatile substances, explosives/ammunition, regulated infectious waste, hazardous wastes, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), radioactive materials just to name a few.
The Village will pick up mattresses and box springs if they are in a Village approved bag. The Village sells the bags for $10.00 each. Only one item per bag. Call the Village Hall at 217-529-3352 to arrange a time to pick up a bag. Cash or checks only. Please have your items ready and remember that if you have a mattress they need to be in separate bags for the crew to be picked up. You can purchase the bags with tape from the Village for $10.00 each.

SANGAMON COUNTY, IL – Sangamon County has announced the start of the Large Item Pick-up Program, catering exclusively to residents living outside the City of Springfield Corporate Limits. Beginning today, October 2nd, the new program allows eligible residents to schedule pick-up or drop-off of large items not typically accommodated by regular waste management services. The Sangamon County Board unanimously approved the partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County at its September Board meeting.
County Board Member and Chairman of the Public Health Committee, James Schackmann, says, “The Large Item Pick-up Program meets County residents’ unique needs by providing a convenient disposal option of large unneeded items. In addition to assisting some of our more rural residents, the new program will contribute to overall County cleanliness.”
All eligible residents qualify for free scheduled residential curbside pick-up of up to six items per calendar year. Pick-ups can be divided into two transactions.
Eligible items include furniture, appliances, mattresses, and other bulky household objects. Restricted items include hazardous materials, tires, TVs, and other electronic goods. A complete list of eligible and restricted items can be found at SangamonIL.Gov/Habitat.
Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County provides Springfield residents with an identical large item pick-up program. The City of Springfield program is unchanged by the new partnership with the County; Springfield residents should continue to use the service as they have in the past.
Upon scheduling a pick-up, residents will receive detailed instructions and guidelines for preparing their items for collection. The program prioritizes environmentally friendly disposal methods, including recycling, repurposing, or appropriate disposal at designated facilities, in alignment with Sangamon County’s commitment to sustainable waste management practices.
Residents must schedule pick-ups and drop-offs in advance by contacting Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County at 217-523-2710, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by scheduling service online at habitatsangamon.vonigo.com/external/.
