Please donate your plastic bags and 
help us collect 500 pounds of plastic!

The MM Senior Center is working with the Trex Community Recycling Program to recycle plastic bags. In six months the Senior Center needs to collect 500 pounds of plastic. They will receive a bench from the company if they reach their goal!

They are asking for help from residents to bring clean, dry plastic bags from 9 am to 1pm Monday through Friday at the Mt. Morris Senior Center, 9 East Front St. The Village Hall is also collecting the plastic bags for them.

Any plastic that stretches is the right kid of plastic to recycle with this program. They can’t take any hard plastic, but plastic bags and plastic wrap will work. Be sure that all plastic brought in is clean and dry.

If you need to drop it off at a different time, call the Senior Center at 815-734-6335 to make arrangements.

The Mt. Morris Police and Fire Departments wish to announce that it is once again time to start off the 2023 “Toys for Kids” campaign. This program, with your help, provides Christmas gifts for the less fortunate children in the Mt. Morris Fire Protection District.

Last year over 100 children had a happier holiday because of this program. Help put a smile on a child’s face at Christmas.

Cash donations & checks payable to Mt. Morris Fireman’s Association will gladly be accepted at the Mt. Morris Police Department or Village Hall, located at 105 W. Lincoln, Mt. Morris, IL 61054.

Names, ages, and addresses of needy children, within the Mt. Morris Fire District, can be left by calling (815) 734-4106 or stopping in at Village Hall.
