Village Launches Old or Unusable Holiday Lights Collection for Recycling
The Village of Arlington Heights has a recycling program for old or unusable holiday lights and extension cords from now through February 26th, 2021.
HANA has setup a collection box at 212 W Fremont St that you can conveniently drop items off at. These items will be taken to the village drop-off points for recycling.
Lights that are accepted for this program are: mini-lights (or Italian lights), C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights, extension cords, etc. All colors and lengths will be accepted. Garland, live greens, wreaths or other non-recyclables are not accepted in this program.
Wheeling Food Pantry Donations
The Wheeling Township Food Pantry continues to support needy families through the pandemic and relies on our support. They are accepting food as well as monetary donations. Expand to read more about our most needed items and donation information.
Most Needed Items:
• Beef Stew
• Macaroni & Cheese
• Meat Products such as Chicken, Hash, Ham
• Peanut Butter
• Spaghetti Sauce
Although most of our food comes from private donors like you who live locally, 2,904 lbs. of food was purchased in April from the Greater Chicago Food Depository with monetary donations from the community. On May 1st we began disbursing a $25 gift card to Aldi in addition to the bags, so that families can purchase needed perishable items. None of this would be possible without your support! We sincerely appreciate your ongoing commitment to our pantry. You are the epitome of our mission of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”.
If you prefer a monetary donation, checks should be made payable to "Wheeling Township Emergency Fund, Inc.", which is the legal name of the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization to which the Food Pantry belongs.
Donations are accepted Mon-Fri from 9:00-4:00 in the Supervisor's Office.
Donations received at: 1616 N. Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights
If you have any questions please call our office at (847)259-7730 or email: GA@wheelingtownship.com.
