One of the many services provided by Ela Township to unincorporated Ela Township residents is the negotiation of refuse and recycle services in order to get the best rates possible. The current contract with Waste Management is due to expire in August. The Township has received bids from Groot, LRS, and Waste Management. At the upcoming Board meeting on Thursday, May 11th, the Board will be voting on which contract to approve. We would like to invite any interested residents to come to the meeting to provide input and feedback, which will assist the Board in making an informed decision on behalf of the residents. Township Board meetings begin at 7 p.m. and are held at Ela Town Hall 1155 E. IL Route 22, Lake Zurich, in the lower level Board Room.
