The holidays are over, and it's a busy week ahead in Plainfield.

The village board meets Monday at 7 p.m. to vote on a proposal to bring a Speedway gas station to Route 30 and Renwick Road, plus plans to revert the nearly vacant Fairfield Ridge subdivision back to a single-family development.

On Wednesday, Mayor Mike Collins will host Coffee with the Mayor at 9 a.m. at Village Hall, 24401 W. Lockport St.

Time to take the decorations down

If you haven't already taken down your Christmas decor, now's the time.

According to the village, Waste Management will accept real trees on regular refuse collection days. From the village website: "Trees should be bundled properly and placed at the curb. They must be four (4) feet or shorter in length and width and tied with string or twine, weighing 50 pounds or less."

There's also still time to dispose of unwanted string lights; the Plainfield Public Library, 15025 S. Illinois St., is accepting lights for recycling. Lights can be dropped off through Feb. 6 and will be recycled and repurposed by Elgin Recycling.

The library lights recycling program is a great idea and so darn smart.
