The World of Recycling is Changing  
Recycling is at risk


We need your help. We collect hundreds of tons of recycling material every day in communities.  Unfortunately, a higher percentage of non-recyclable materials are being found in the recycling. That often happens by mistake or due to lack of information. Current recycling markets are requiring clean, quality materials with virtually no contamination. With proper education and decision making, we can make a difference and ensure recycling is sustainable for generations to come.

Some of the most common contaminates that are found in the recycling stream include: 

  • Plastic bags, which often may be returned to retailers, are NOT accepted in single stream recycling. 
  • Pizza  boxes, which contain residual grease, cheese or other toppings. Don’t include food-soiled items and liquids – they can turn an entire load of recycling into trash. 
  • Bubble wrap and shrink wrap cause damage, down-time and costly repairs to recycling equipment. 
  • Electrical cords, string/rope material, rubber and plastic hose, clothing. These items are called “tanglers” and can shut down an entire recycling plant! 
  • Propane tanks, batteries and electronic waste can start fires at the recycling plant. 
  • Medical equipment and devices of any kind, such as needles, tubing and gloves.  They can cause injury to  workers.

MEDICATION TAKE BACK EVENT
August 4, 2018

Increasing amounts of prescription drugs and personal care products (PPCPs) are being detected in U.S. rivers, waterways, and groundwater. Wastewater treatment facilities are not equipped to “filter out” these chemicals, so drugs like antidepressants, cholesterol reducers and antibiotics are being detected in drinking water supplies. The risk to humans and animals of long-term exposure to these contaminants in drinking water is unknown.

In addition, many children are the victims of accidental poisonings each year due to medications and personal care products in the home. In order to protect our children and the environment, we must ensure that medications and personal care products are properly handled, stored and disposed!

The Medication Take-Back Program allows residents of the Kane County area to bring their old, unwanted prescription and over the counter medications in to be properly disposed for FREE! In compliance with the Controlled Substance Act (CSA), enforced by the Drug Enforcement Administration, this program CAN NOT ACCEPT any liquids or syringes.

Acceptable Items                                                Unacceptable Items


Non-Controlled DEA Drugs                                     Thermometers
Medication Samples                                               Liquids/ syringes
Prescription Medications                                         IV Bags
Over-the-counter Medications                                 Sharps/Needles
Medicated Ointments/Lotions                                  Bloody or Infectious Waste  
Vitamins                                                               Empty Containers
Medications for Pets 
Inhalers


Medication Collection Instructions:

  1. Gather your unwanted medications. Please see the list above to find out which items can or cannot be returned.

  3. Remove or black out any personal information on the label to protect your privacy.
  4. Take medications to the Kane County Safety Coalition Day on August 4, 2018 10am-2pm at Moose Heart Fieldhouse and drop the medications into the collection container at the event
