South Elgin Electronics Drop-off to close at end of 2017
One of three Kane County electronics recycling locations will close this month. The Electronics Recycling Drop-off location at 735 Martin Drive in South Elgin at the old Public Works building is set to close permanently as of Friday, December 29th, 2017.
The County and their electronics recycling contractor, eWorks Electronics Services, have partnered with the Village of South Elgin since September of 2016, who hosted the site. Because South Elgin Public Works staff are now located at another building, they are not able to continue to provide assistance with forklifting the materials into the trucks and so the site has to be closed.
Kane County’s other two locations will remain open. They are in West Dundee and Batavia, open 40 hours a week during the hours listed below.
517 E. Fabyan Parkway,
Batavia, IL 60510
Hours: M-F 8am-4pm
West Dundee Public Works
900 Angle Tarn,
West Dundee, IL 60118
Hours: M-F 7am-3pm
Kane County Recycles will continue to offer electronics collection events scheduled on Saturdays throughout 2018. Please see the County website at www.countyofkane.org/recycling for more information and the complete list of event dates.
