Oswego Committees & Commissions


The purpose of the ECO Commission is to protect and improve our environment for you and for future generations. We are volunteer stewards for the environment.

We seek to:

  • Gain input about the environment from our neighbors and community leaders
  • Provide good information on the environment
  • Involve Oswego leaders in key issues and opportunities
  • Increase recycling and reuse through hands-on activities
  • Offer ideas on how to improve ordinances and contracts that impact the environment.


ECO’s strategy is to:

  • Get people outside to enjoy green spaces, the river and the Oswego environment.
  • Further shrink Oswego’s carbon footprint by choosing green energy and green alternatives.
  • Minimize solid waste that goes into landfills, by recycling, composting and reuse.
  • Secure long-term sources of drinking water for Oswego.
  • Increase the value of the Fox River as a recreational and environmental resource.
  • Maximize local organic food so healthy food is close at hand.
