Village Garbage Collection Change Begins in October

Over the last several months, the Village Board has researched the possibility of entering into an agreement with a single trash collection company to service all residential customers in the Village of Thomasboro.  After soliciting bids from several area companies, the Board has now contracted with Republic Services for all residential trash collection beginning October 1, 2016.  The first pickup date will be Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

The charge for trash collection will now be included as an additional line item on your Village water bill each month.  Republic will be delivering containers to each residence during the week of September 26th.  Please note that all containers will now need to be placed on the street side of your property for curbside pickup, as Republic is using specialized trucks that are unable to travel the alleys.

It will be the responsibility of each resident to contact your current trash hauler to cancel your service and to request a refund for any services that may have already been paid.

Republic Services Information & FAQs

For questions about the new service, please contact Republic Services at (217) 554-7007 or by email to, or call Village Hall at 643-2675.

Petitions Available for Village Board Election

The next election for the offices of Village President and three (3) Village Trustee positions will be held on April 4, 2017.  Beginning September 20th, residents interested in seeking one of these offices may begin circulating petitions for inclusion on the April ballot.  Petition packets may be picked up at Village Hall, 101 W. Main Street, during regular business hours (M-F 8:00am to 12:00pm).

Petitions will be filed with the Village Clerk beginning December 12, 2016 through December 19, 2016.


Community Cleanup Day is October 15th

The Village of Thomasboro will be hosting another community cleanup day on Saturday, October 15th, from 8:00am to 12:00pm at the Water Treatment Plant.  In order to continue offering this service to our residents, some new rules have been implemented.  Anyone dropping off items at the collection site will need to provide a current utility bill to show proof of Thomasboro residency to ensure that we are only serving our Village residents.  We are also asking individuals to bring a reasonable amount of trash to the site so we can ensure adequate space is available in the dumpsters for all the residents who would like to participate.  This year, the Village is discontinuing free pickup service from resident’s homes to the collection site.

Village Begins Offering Online Payment for Water & Sewer Bills

In an effort to improve customer service, the Village of Thomasboro announces that residents will now be able to pay water and sewer bills using credit or debit card through the secure Illinois E-Pay online site.  Payments may be made using MasterCard, Discover, or American Express; however, Visa is not being accepted at this time.

To use the E-pay system, customers will need to enter their 8-digit water account number found in the upper left corner of the water and sewer bill card (e.g. 100100.10).  If you do not have your bill available or need to verify the balance due, please contact the Water Department at 643-2675.  Please note that credit or debit card payments can only be made using the E-pay site; the Village is not able to accept cards in person.
