Earth Day Celebration at Village Hall

The Village’s ECO Commission will hold an event on Saturday April 22nd in honor of Earth Day.  The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to Noon at the Oswego Village Hall, 100 Parkers Mill, Oswego. The event will include a demonstration of a butterfly garden, composting, and raising chickens.  Fox Metro will be hosting a drop off for medical prescriptions. Eye glasses, Styrofoam and packing materials may also be dropped off.  There will be a book and bicycle exchange.  Please note that electronics, scrap metal, TV’s, or household items will NOT be accepted.

The Village of Oswego, in partnership with the Conservation Foundation, is selling rain barrels! Rain barrels are large containers that capture storm water from your roof that would otherwise be lost as runoff. Per the Conservation Foundation, approximately 40 percent of total household water use during the summer months is for watering lawns and gardens. Rainwater is a sustainable solution for watering flowers and gardens, or washing cars and windows.

Please place your order before April 18, 2017. Rain barrels will cost $55-$60 and can be ordered through the Village of Oswego’s website at www.oswegoil.org. When ordering, select the Village of Oswego order form on the right sidebar and choose to deliver the barrel to your home for an additional $5, or choose municipal pick up for no additional charge.

Orders placed prior to April 18 for municipal pick up are to be collected at the ECO Earth Day Event on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Oswego Village Hall, located at 100 Parkers Mill. Please collect rain barrels from this facility prior to 12:00 pm on April 22. 

At the Earth Day event, in honor of Arbor Day, Village of Oswego Public Works staff will be planting two trees at the Oswego Village Hall. This will take place on Saturday, April 22nd at 10:00 a.m. If you would like to be a part of this annual event, please be at the Village Hall parking lot near the Gazebo by 10:00 a.m.
