News Release Courtesy of the Kane County Recycling Program Office:
It is true that the two remaining Kane County weekday drop-offs in St. Charles and West Dundee are closing indefinitely as of April 8, but there is no need to panic!
The Kane County Electronics Recycling collection events will be held at 540 S. Randall Road in St. Charles on the second Saturday of each month April through November of 2016 on these dates: April 9, May 14, June 11, July 9, Aug. 13, Sept. 10, Oct. 8 and Nov. 12. Electronics and books will be accepted at all events. Check online for a list of the additional items we will accept at certain events throughout the year. Please note that these events are for Kane County residents only.
The first Kane County Recycles Event of the year will be held on Saturday, April 9 between 8 a.m. and noon. At this event, you can recycle electronics including TVs (free), books (free), and liquid latex paint (for a fee). You may also bring up to four large boxes of residential confidential documents for onsite shredding (free). See the link below for a complete list of accepted items. We will accept up to three TVs per car of any type, size, or age. Large loads of TVs will not be accepted.
Avoid Long Lines: The following event will be on May 14, and we will be recycling electronics and books only. Please wait for this event if you have only electronics or books to recycle. April 9 is expected to have increased traffic and much longer lines! Help out by waiting until May if you can.
Businesses with electronics to recycle: This program is for Kane County residents only. Businesses, institutions, schools, and non-profits may not use this event, but must contract for recycling services from a certified electronics recycler.
