[ARCHIVED] Kane County To Host Recycling Event April 14

Electronics Recycling Kane County

The Kane County Recycles Event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 14 at the Kane County Circuit Court Clerk's Office, 540 S. Randall, St. Charles. Crews will be accepting electronics, books and paint for recycling, and documents for shredding.

Electronics 

Computers, keyboards, laptops, printers, televisions (any size or age), stereos, cell phones, microwaves, Christmas lights, can be recycled here. Crews will take TVs of any size, type, or age. Note that TVs and Monitors have a cost to recycle. See below. Crews will unload for you. A complete list of accepted items, and more information can be found on Kane County's website.

Books 

Books of any age and condition for reuse or recycling.

Paint 

Liquid latex paint will be recycled at this event. Paint has a recycling fee per container, payable by the resident with cash or check; see below for costs. Latex paint is non-toxic but difficult to dispose of normally because you have to dry it out before placing it in your landfill trash. However, liquid latex paint can be recycled into new products with no drying out necessary by bringing it to this event.  Crews will also take oil paint, but please note that you can recycle it for free at the Naperville Hazardous Waste Facility. More details and costs for recycling oil paint at the event can be found on Kane County's website.

Shredding

Documents of a confidential nature may be shredded for free onsite. Limit is about 4 boxes because this is a free service for residents only. No documents from businesses please. More guidelines can be found on Kane County's website


Costs

•    TVs and computer monitors have a recycling fee paid directly to the non-profit recycler ($25 for screens under 21" - measured diagonally across the screen, or $35 for screens 21" and over), payable by the resident with cash or card.
•    Paint has a recycling fee per container, payable by the resident with cash or check. Liquid latex paint is $2/quart can, $3.50/gallon can, and $10/ 5-gallon bucket.

The next Kane County Recycles event will be held Saturday, May 12 and will be for electronics and books only. View the Kane County Recycles schedule for future collection events in 2018.
