Lions of Illinois Foundation Collection Containers

Containers for collection are available upon request from the Lions of Illinois Foundation by calling (815) 756-5633. Otherwise, you can create your own container out of an old box or plastic milk jug and simply cut a slot into the top of it, similar to the collection jugs utilized for Candy Day. Attach a label onto the container with the name of the Lions, Lioness, or Leo Club, plus the name of the contact person to call when the container is full.

Suggested locations to place recycling containers are schools, business offices, health clubs, local libraries, and any other high traffic areas.

A Lions member should check the container periodically so that they can give the items to their District Trustee. The donated items will be taken to the Lions of Illinois Foundation. You may also call the office at (815) 756-5633 for more information.

All funds from the sale of our recycling items help pay for our programs which assist the visually and hearing impaired throughout the state of Illinois. To fill out a recycling donation form, click here.
