The Village of Thomasboro will reopen the community landscape waste disposal site on North Thomas Street beginning Friday, October 3 through Monday, October 6, 2014. Residents will be permitted to drop off any brush, branches and tree trimmings at the site during that period free of charge. Please note that only landscape waste is allowed to be left at the site; the dumping of garbage, furniture or other bulky household items is prohibited. After October 6, the site will again be closed until the next community cleanup in May 2015.
Candidate petition packets are now available for residents interested in seeking one of the five available seats on the Thomasboro Village Board in the April 7, 2015 election. Packets may be picked up at Village Hall during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 12:00pm.

The Village Board of Trustees will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. The meeting will begin at 7:00pm at Village Hall, 101 W. Main Street. Please note that this meeting has been moved to Tuesday evening to avoid a conflict with the Labor Day holiday.
The Thomasboro Community Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014. The Village will be handling advertising for the event; however, residents may also choose to place ads for their own sales. Participants are encouraged to mark their garage sales with balloons or signs tied to their mailboxes or lamp posts to help draw attention to their sales.
The Thomasboro Village Board has set the 2014 Fall Community Cleanup Day for Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Dumpsters and scrap metal recycling containers will be set up at the Water Treatment Plant, 606 W. Central Avenue, and will be available for all Thomasboro residents to dispose of unwanted items to help keep our community looking great. Please note that a valid driver’s license or official identification showing a Village of Thomasboro address must be presented in order to participate.
Village officials will be monitoring the site, as certain items will not be accepted for disposal. Non-permitted items include: hazardous chemicals, automobiles, tires, computers, monitors, televisions, other electronic equipment, landscape waste, and raw garbage. Residents with electronic equipment in need of disposal are encouraged to take advantage of the next Champaign County Free Residential Electronics Collection on Saturday, October 11, 2014, from 8:00am to 12:00pm at Parkland College in Champaign. For more information on that program, please click here.
Free will donations will be accepted from those who participate in the community cleanup to help defray some of the expenses incurred by the Village for the dumpster rental and hauling. Residents who need assistance in transporting items to the cleanup site can call Village Hall at 643-2675.
