The next Kane County Recycles Event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 1 at the Kane County Circuit Court Clerk's Office, 540 S. Randall Road, St. Charles. The program will be recycling electronics, books, paint and offering free confidential document shredding.
Residents will be able to recycle electronics like computers, keyboards, laptops, printers, televisions (any size or age), stereos, cell phones, microwaves, Christmas lights, and more. All items will be unloaded from your car. A complete list of accepted items and more information can be found on Kane County's website
Most electronic items can be dropped off for free, everything except for TVs and monitors, which have a cost.
Cost for TVs and monitors
TVs and computer monitors – both tube and flat screen – have a fee of $25 for screens under 21” (measured diagonally) and $35 for screens 21” and over.
The fee may be paid online in advance or onsite with cash or card. Exact change is appreciated. The fee that you pay for screened equipment goes directly to the County’s contracted electronics recycler, eWorks, a non-profit whose main mission is to employ developmentally disabled individuals.
