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.
