The 2020 Census is Coming…

US Census LogoThe 2020 Census at a Glance

Village of Maple Park


Counting everyone once, only once, and in the right place.

The U.S. Census Bureau is the federal government’s largest statistical agency. They are dedicated to providing current facts and figures about America’s people, places, and economy. Federal law protects the confidentiality of all individual responses the Census Bureau collects.

The U.S. Constitution requires that each decade we take a count—or a census—of America’s population.

The census provides vital information for you and your community.

  • It determines how many representatives each state gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries. Redistricting counts are sent to the states by March 31, 2021.
  • Communities, like Maple Park, rely on census statistics to plan for a variety of resident needs including new roads, schools, and emergency services.
  • Businesses use census data to determine where to open places to shop.

Each year, the federal government distributes hundreds of billions of dollars to states and communities based on Census Bureau data.

In 2020, new technology will be implemented to make it easier than ever to respond to the census. For the first time, you will be able to respond online, by phone, as well as by mail. They will use data that the public has already provided to reduce follow-up visits. And, they are building an accurate address list and automating their field operations—all while keeping your information confidential.

So, please, complete the census. It will help your community!

Recycling Sea of Change: Illinois Developing Consensus on Items ‘Accepted’ or ‘Not Accepted’

Recycling Sea Change: Illinois Developing Consensus on Items ‘Accepted’ or ‘Not Accepted’

  • Editor’s Note: This article, written by Kane County Recycling Coordinator Jennifer Jarland, is the second of a three-part series on China’s National Sword legislation and its effects on recycling programs in Kane County. Got questions or concerns? Contact Jarland at at 630-208-3841 or recycle@countyofkane.org.

The impacts of China’s National Sword legislation and the shifting world of recycling have yet to hit Illinois in force, but to be sure, they are coming.

In response, a group of statewide stakeholders and experts have been convened into a Recycling Contamination Task Force, which includes representation from Illinois associations, agencies, haulers, Materials Recovery Facility operators, and county program coordinators.

I am a member of the task force, serving in my capacity as a board member of the Illinois Counties Solid Waste Management Association.

At our most recent meeting, the task force reviewed a detailed list of recyclable materials and arrived at consensus concerning which items would be “accepted” or “not accepted” for recycling statewide, with a couple of items being “accepted in some areas.”

The list looks nearly identical to the existing Kane County Recycling Guidelines.
