Trash Company Survey

Click Here for Survey 

Residents we are seeking some information regarding your current trash company. The Village of Tilton has been asked to consider a municipal contract for trash serving giving residents lower monthly collection bills. However, everyone would be required to use the same service. No action has been taken on this matter and the Board feels it is best to hear directly from the residents of Tilton. This matter is going to be strongly investigated and we would like your help to answer a short survey to help us understand your opinion. 

Thank You,

Village of Tilton Board of Trustees



Welcome to the crown jewel of Central Illinois. This is the land of old coal mining, Gas Stations, Great Car Dealerships, friendly people, and copious amounts of food and love. Yes, it does rain, snow, become scorching hot, and on occasion a nice storm, but that does not stop us from enjoying life. In the winter, music, local bars, and our local cuisine keep the town buzzing. But when the sun comes out, you will find residents heading for Herschel Lake, Vermilion River, ATV Park, attending a festival, or flocking to the town’s many parks.

The Village of Tilton was founded in 1884. It is named after Charles Tilton, a friend of Abraham Lincoln, who worked for the railroads. Lincoln reputedly had Thanksgiving dinner at Tilton's house in the Village in the 1850s.

The Village of Tilton maintains a quality of life typically associated with small Midwestern towns, including low municipal tax rates, no personal property tax, acreage of prime developed land located on Illinois Route 1, a low crime rate, quiet un-congested neighborhoods, and a responsive government. Ease of access right onto Interstate I-74, making Tilton a great place to raise your family.
