See the Village of Skokie Environmental Sustainability Plan that is under consideration.

On November 21, 2022, the Village Board will continue consideration of the Village's next Environmental Sustainability Plan. The proposed plan includes recommendations from the Sustainable Environmental Advisory Commission (SEAC) that include eliminating twice-weekly refuse collection in favor of a single weekly refuse collection and providing enhanced options for compostable materials such as food, paper and other types of organic waste.

See a video of the November 14, 2022 Special Village Board meeting at which the ESP was reviewed and presentations were given on reducing refuse collection from twice weekly to once weekly, food scrap composting, community development opportunities for existing and new buildings, increased communications and more components of the recommended plan.
