Get set for the Holidays with sweet treats, crafts and a visit from Santa where you can take a photo! All activities will take place in Fountain View Recreation Center after the Tree Lighting

The Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, December 1st at the Ross Ferraro Town Center. The night will begin promptly at 6:00 pm with dance entertainment from a local troupe and Christmas Caroling led by the Jay Stream Choir, then Santa Claus's highly anticipated arrival at 6:30 pm. Once the tree is aglow, travel the short distance to the Fountain View Recreation Center for holiday refreshments, holiday music, kid's crafts and a complimentary photo with Ol' St. Nick.


Beginning the week of September 18, the Public Works Department will flush fire hydrants throughout the Village. The flushing activities will take approximately two weeks to complete and will occur Monday-Thursday from 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

The Village flushes public owned hydrants on a regular basis in order to remove any accumulation of minerals and other deposits that exist in the watermain to improve the quality of water for the customers.  In addition, the Public Works Department inspects all fire hydrants to make sure that they are properly working.

As the flushing process removes accumulated deposits in the watermain, residents may temporarily experience some discolored water.  Should this occur, simply run the cold water until the line clears.

The Village will post signs in the area that is being flushed to advise residents that hydrant flushing will be taking place.  If you have any further questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 630-871-6260.














Each November the Village hosts a pumpkin recycling event at Town Center. This year we are expanding this event to include electronics recycling and are hosting it at our Water Reclamation Center (245 Kuhn Rd.) on November 4th (8AM-Noon). 

The Village of Carol Stream will be partnering with eWorks, Glenbard North Green Panthers, SCARCEFlood Brothers Disposal, and DuPage County to host the Pumpkin and Electronics recycling event which will be open to residents and non-residents. It is state law that electronics cannot be disposed in a landfill so we are here to help with a recycling event. While most qualifying electronics will be recycled for free, there is a fee for televisions and monitors. 

Under 21 inch screen = $25.00 per unit
21 inch screen and over = $35.00 per unit
Cash or Credit Card accepted- NO Checks
By recycling pumpkins you are helping to reduce the methane released from landfills and returning important nutrients to the soil. Pumpkins for recycling should be free from decorative additions like wax, yarn, and googly eyes. 

If the item you need to recycle is not covered or you need to recycle your items before November, you can check out this handy recycling guide on the DuPage County website and this recycling event calendar.

Commercial Real Estate Developer The Missner Group submitted an application for development approvals to construct a 192,000 square foot warehouse building on a privately-owned 13-acre site at the northeast corner of North Avenue and Kuhn Road. The Missner Group has withdrawn all applications related to this project. Should the Missner Group choose to resubmit the project they would have to start from the beginning of the application process and return to the Plan Commission.

The proposed property for development is located between North Avenue and McNees Drive, which is the entrance roadway into Carol Stream's Water Reclamation Center (WRC). The proposed development site included the large vacant field at the corner of North & Kuhn, and the small unincorporated property to the east containing a white residential structure, which would have been demolished.
