  • New Baden yard sale, clean-up events set for April 26, May 3
    New Baden's Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Village of New Baden, will have its annual spring clean up event on the consecutive Saturdays of April 26 and May 3. The City Wide Yard Sale portion will be April 26. Residents are encouraged to turn unused items into cash. Residents who want to advertise their sales should contact Village Hall at 588-3813 or via the Village website at NewBadenIL.com. Addresses will be compiled into a list available online prior to sale day at the same web address. Advertisements will also be placed in local papers and various internet sites by the Chamber of Commerce to gather the interest from surrounding communities. All pre-registered sales will be listed on the advertisement free of charge. New Baden Jaycees will offer an early morning breakfast for sale-goers starting at 7 a.m. As the day progresses the Jaycees will transition to their familiar BBQ fare consisting of pork steaks, brats, hot dogs, hamburgers, slaw, and baked potatoes, starting at 10 a.m. The Jaycees now accept credit cards as a convenience for customers. New Baden's Spring Clean Up will be on May 3 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dumpsters will be available to New Baden residents for a nominal dumping fee used to cover expenses. A single-stream recycling dumpster for all household recyclables will also be available. The clean-up will take place behind the Lookingglass Township highway shed just off Rt. 160, south of the railroad tracks. According to clean-up chairman Scott Meinhardt, "almost any item will be accepted and disposed of on this day, but unfortunately no hazardous materials such as liquid paint, thinners, solvents or pesticides can or will be accepted." Some of the items accepted include cars, car parts, tires, wood, landscape waste, concrete, waste oil, scrap metal, furniture, appliances, mattresses, carpeting, building products, clothing, rock, electronics, computers, printers, automotive batteries, televisions, books, and paper Meinhardt said more and more electronics seem to be discarded each year. To that end, the services of Citizens for a Better Tomorrow (CBT), a local not-for-profit electronics recycling group, will handle all electronics, with the goal of keeping all the electronics from entering landfills. CBT will service residents of New Baden and non-residents alike. Due to the cost of recycling, an additional fee of $5 for CRT computer monitors and televisions will be charged. Leading up to the events, New Baden Chief Zoning and Code Enforcement Officer Jerry Green and the New Baden Police Department will inspect properties throughout the Village and issue notices to those found in violation of the Village's property maintenance codes. If the owners do not comply, the Village is authorized to levy fines between $75 and $750 per day against the property owner. "We are hoping for voluntary compliance," Green said. "However for owners who do not bring their property into compliance, fines will be levied, and ultimately liens can be filed against the property." Inoperable motor vehicles are also a concern within the Village. Village code stipulates that all inoperable motor vehicles must be stored inside. Any vehicle parked on any public street or on any private property must be licensed, insured, and completely operable. Any property owner allowing an inoperable vehicle to remain is subject to the same fines. The Village is authorized by village code to remove any vehicles and charge the owner for expenses, in addition to the fines. In 2013, the clean-up netted over 7,500 pounds of scrap steel, 24 appliances, 40 gallons of waste oil, 26 tires, and 160 cubic yards of landfill waste. This not-for-profit event can always use volunteers. If you would like to volunteer your time to make New Baden a more beautiful place, contact Teri at the New Baden Village Hall at 588-3813 or on the web at newbadenil.com. Senior Citizens can contact Village Hall to arrange for pick-up of a limited set of items.
