Welcoming Spring to Franklin Park

In Franklin Park, we are ready to embrace springtime and renew our commitment to being a sustainable community. Whenever possible, the Village aims to make financially-smart decisions that also help to preserve our environment. I am pleased that our residents have actively embraced recycling. We have a handy Recycling Guide on our website that indicates which items can or cannot be recycled. As a reminder, please do not place plastic bags in your recycling cart. Plastic bags get caught in the equipment at recycling centers and stop or break the machinery. You can bring your discarded plastic bags and plastic wrap to our local Jewel and they will be recycled properly by the store. Is it possible to have a lawn that looks good without using harmful herbicides and insecticides? The answer is yes! Unlike conventional lawn care, which relies on chemical fertilizers and pesticides to artificially green your lawn, natural lawn care focuses on restoring balance to the soil system, including nutrients that make a lawn healthy. Visit our Sustainability Page to learn more about making the switch to natural lawn care this year.

Tree Planting on Earth Day

Franklin Park is proud to have a Tree City USA designation. Please plan to join me at 10:30 AM on Saturday, April 21 as we plant more trees at 9659 West Grand Avenue. Then head over to the Park District’s Earth Day celebration at North Park from Noon to 2 PM. Remember to bring your electronics, and cell phones for recycling, and any medications and unused prescription drugs so that they can be safely disposed.
