Public Act 100-0054
 
HB2423 EnrolledLRB100 07969 AXK 18045 b

    AN ACT concerning transportation.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 1. Public policy. It is hereby declared that wood
chips, mulch, and other products generated in the act of tree
maintenance by a township road district are waste products of
no value to the district. It is further declared that the
distribution of the wood chips, mulch, and other products to
residents of the district is of public benefit, maintenance of
a healthful environment, and reduces costs by eliminating the
need to pay for the hauling and disposal of the products. It is
further recognized that the distribution and delivery of the
wood chips, mulch, and other products to residents of the
district is a long-standing tradition in certain parts of this
State with a minimum fiscal impact. It is further declared that
this traditional service is salutary, as long as it is provided
without prejudice or favor to any particular person or
interest.
 
    Section 5. The Illinois Highway Code is amended by changing
Section 6-132 as follows:
 
    (605 ILCS 5/6-132)
    Sec. 6-132. Recycling; tree maintenance.
    (a) A road district may organize, administer, or
participate in one or more recycling programs.
    (b) Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, a
road district may deliver wood chips, mulch, and other products
generated in the act of tree maintenance by the district to the
residents of the district on a first come, first serve basis or
other method of random selection. The road district shall
provide adequate notice to the resident prior to the product
being available and prior to the delivery of the product, which
shall include the amount of the product being delivered.
