DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin, along with board members, unveiled and ceremoniously cut a ribbon for the first Vactor Receiving Station in Illinois and only the third one in the country.
The station’s located at the Woodridge-Green Valley Wastewater Treatment Facility along Route 53 in Woodridge. There, public works and transportation vacuum tanker trucks will be able to dump their waste and debris, which will be separated into liquids and solids. The liquids will be treated through the county’s treatment facility while the solids will be dried and transferred to the garbage dump.
County employees will begin using the facility within the next couple weeks and beginning next fall, various municipalities, including Naperville, will be able to utilize its services as well.
The Vactor Receiving Station cost $800,000 to build, funded from a previous bond that county had issued.
