Thanks to our recycling center there will be 22 tons LESS garbage at the landfill. The Recycling program in Paxton is a joint effort between the City of Paxton and Central Illinoins Disposal & Recycling. The City has a contract with CIDR for the Hauling of the Recyclables and Pays the salary of Joe Spinalli ( 2 Great Investments ) CIDR supplies the building,  collects, separate,s stores, and ultimately hauls the recyclables to a larger recycling/processing center.

From  Mayor Ingold: The city just paid $1561.70 for the trucking of recyclables to Central Illinois Disposal and Recycling (Gene May) this was for 22.31 tons from 3/16/2010 to 3/31/2011 this is per the city’s agreement with G May.  G May furnishes the building and stores the items and once a year, hauls to a re-cycling center.also, the city pays the salary of Mr Spinelli at the recycling center.
