Electronics Recycling

Electronic Products Landfill Ban
As of January 1, 2012, the Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act landfill ban for certain electronic devices took effect. Electronic items such as televisions, monitors, computers and printers are some of the most common items that are no longer allowed in the regular trash. Residents of the County should direct prohibited electronic items to a residential recycling collection event hosted by  SWALCO or SWALCO sponsored electronic drop off locations.

Other recycling or reuse options that may be available include; donation of good working equipment to a charitable organization, utilizing an at home collection service or bringing them to a retail store that accepts electronics for recycling.
