Vernon Hills Police Support Toys For Tots 

From November 1 through December 14, the Vernon Hills Police Department will again be a drop-off location for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.  Last year, we collected enough toys to fill seventeen boxes.  We’d like to repeat that again this year – or beat it. 

All kinds of toys can be donated.  Some ideas for older children include sporting equipment/bags/balls, books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.

The Toys for Tots program accepts new, unwrapped items.  Realistic looking weapons or gifts with food will not be accepted.  If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.
Naturally, the Police Department drop-off box at 740 Lakeview Parkway is available 24 hours-a-day.  However, the Vernon Hills Village Hall and the Vernon Hills Public Works facility are also drop-off locations.  Visit vhpd.com for the hours these additional boxes are accessible.

“We hope everyone joins us in making the holidays happy for children who might otherwise receive nothing,” said Patrick L. Kreis, Chief of Police.   "It would be great if we had to empty the box every single day.”

Anyone with questions should call the Vernon Hills Police Department Crime Prevention Unit at (847) 247-4889

Pumpkins, Pumpkins, and More Pumpkins!!!

There will be opportunities for residents to drop-off pumpkins to be composted. That's Mother Nature's oldest form of recycling!
Why compost pumpkins, you ask?
¨ They are full of nutrients that are good for the soil.
¨ They are 90% water.
¨ Most of the pumpkins processed in the United States are grown in Illinois – let’s keep the water and those nutrients here!
¨ Landfills are the 3rd largest producers of methane gas.
Please. Pumpkins only. No candles, yarn, plastic eyes and mouths, or other decorations. Please remove these before you come.
Pumpkin Drop-offs:
Saturday, November 4, 2017
• Village of Gurnee, 235 OPlaine Rd., Gurnee, IL 60031, Saturday, November 4, from 9 am to 12:00 pm
• College of Lake County, Parking Lot 3, Grayslake, Saturday, November 4, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm Sunday, November 5, 2017
• Mundelein Park District, Community Park Sled Hill, Mundelein, IL from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm (in conjunction with the Park District's Pumpkin Drop event)
And don't forget, SWALCO continues to promote backyard composting for residents and families. We make compost bins and accessories available at half the retail cost, as we have supplies. If you have a bin, you could compost your own!
