Village Seeking Building Inspector
Applicants are being sought for the position of building inspector for the Village of Orion. Qualified applicants can pick up an application form at Village Hall, 1202 4th Street, during regular business hours. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m., July 1, 2014.
Another Option for Recycling Electronics
Eagle Enterprises Recycling, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of an electronics collection site at its facility in Galva. Beginning January 2012, the number of electronic items banned from landfills was expanded, making it ever more difficult to dispose of those televisions, computer monitors, printers, and the like.
Electronic recyclables cannot be combined with residential recyclables, so DO NOT put electronics in your curbside bin. Electronics can only be disposed by transporting them to 510 S. E. Industrial Avenue, Galva, during Eagle's business hours of 6:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on Saturdays. There is no charge for bringing items to the collection site.
For more information contact Eagle Enterprises Recycling at 1-888-932-2936 or
