DANVILLE — Following the village employee Christmas party, Danville Village Council met for the final time in 2013.

The first order of business was a visit from Larry Cooper, district director for the DKMM Solid Waste District. Cooper explained he was there because of the recycling drop-off site in the village.

He said that because of usage, the village will be getting a new, bigger recycling bin for 2014. The new bins will be a combination of five bins that will help the district better recycle the approximately 7 tons of waste the village generates each month.

The amount of recycling has increased enough to warrant the new bins and Dale’s Cardinal Market, which currently houses the bins, would not commit to the new ones. Cooper asked about other possible locations for the bins and was told about one possibility on private property on Progress Drive.
