The Village of Bethany...A great place to call home!

In the Village of Bethany, we are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. Small town values, guided growth, preservation of historical, cultural, and natural heritage are just a few of the core principles that makes our village a wonderful place to call home!





There is now recycling back in Bethany! There are two dumpsters located next to the elevators on the south end of town (just south of Main Street, on Lincoln). We are so excited to be able to offer this again to our residents and anyone in the Bethany and Marrowbone Township area is welcome to take advantage!

All we ask, is that you follow the list of items you can and cannot put into the dumpsters (there is a picture below) Make sure that you dump your recycling directly into the dumpsters and do not put them into any kind of plastic bags. And as always, if you are dropping off recycling and you see anything laying around, please help us keep the area clean and presentable by picking it up and placing it back in the dumpsters.

And finally, Remember that this is for recycling ONLY and not for personal garbage! Let's all work together to keep this wonderful opportunity back in Bethany for years to come!








Last week, someone brought in some tools they found in the middle of the road, that we believe may have fallen off of a work truck. If you believe they may belong to you, call us at (217) 665-3351 or head to the "Contact Us" page to send us a message and give us a description of what it is you are missing. If it matches what we have, it's yours! Thank you!
