Village of Lake Barrington Debuts Social Media Sites
The Village is debuting its Facebook and Twitter sites. Facebook and Twitter will provide another avenue of communication with Lake Barrington residents, businesses and the general public. These sites, in conjunction with the Village website, will be used as channels to disseminate time-sensitive information as quickly as possible and as marketing/promotional channels which increase the Village’s ability to broadcast its messages to the widest possible audience.
Last year, the Village E-News, an email newsletter which supplements the hard copy Lake Barrington Bulletin and is sent the residents who sign up for E-Communications, was established. The most recent Village E-News can be found at www.lakebarrington.org, and hard copies are available at the LBS Rec Center.

RECYCLE FIRST – TRASH LAST
Did you know you can put A LOT more than plastic & glass bottles & jars, newspapers & magazines, and aluminum cans in your recycling bin?
Thanks to the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO), a recycling street team was at the Freier Farm Barn Stomp to let people know about recycling. The team learned that many of our residents didnt realize the scope of items that can be placed in their recycling bins. Together we can increase our recyclables and decrease the amount of items that wind up in landfills!
Some items you can place in your recycling bin:
Empty toothpaste tubes
Milk and juice jugs and cartons
Clean and empty paper and plastic cups, plates and utensils
Clean and empty aluminum cans, foil and foil pans
Detergent bottles and boxes
Plasic kids toys
