Water, Refuse and Recycling


Water bills are sent out the 5th of every month and are due on or before the 25th. Payments can be made either by mail (PO Box 122, Chenoa, IL 61726), at the office or placed in the drop box located on the corner of the City Hall building. Payments are also accepted at the State Bank of Graymont. The city now accepts credit cards for payment of your water bill.

Refuse and Recycling

Garbage is picked up on Wednesday. Due to animals getting into the trash, all trash must be placed in a container, preferably with a locked lid. Any trash left outside its proper container will not be picked up. Containers can be put out no earlier than 24 hours prior to pick-up. Garbage is to be placed within 2 feet of the road and containers must be removed from roadside within 24 hours after pick-up.

The following items are NOT allowed to be placed in trash: animal carcasses, yard waste, major appliances, scrap metal, tires and used motor oil. Yard waste will be picked up when the collectors have time. Contact City Hall at (815) 945-7619 for any scrap metal or appliance pick-ups.

The city currently offers a container in the vacant lot on the east side of Green Street to recycle newsprints only.

A dumpster for aluminum cans is provided by the Chenoa Women's Club and only cans will be accepted. The proceeds from this collection are used by the club for civic projects. The dumpster is located downtown next to the city's paper recycling dumpster.

Disposal of Electronics

The city now has a container in which electronics can be delivered to be recycled. By law, the refuse company cannot pick up any electronics listed on page 9 of ATR's information packet which can be seen here. The city is currently working with ATR of Pontiac to help dispose of electronic items for the community.

Your disposable electronics can be brought to City Hall, Monday through Friday, from 8am-5pm. Please do not leave your disposable electronics, contact the office first.
