RECYCLING EVENT

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH

Kane County Recycles is hosting the last recycling event of the year for electronics and books between 8 a.m. and 12 noon on Saturday, November 9th, 2019, at a NEW LOCATION. It will be held at Anderson Park on Brown Road in Campton Hills, IL 60175. 
 

This event is for electronics and books only. It will NOT include document shredding or paint. See here for a list of 2020 event dates.

Books of any age or condition, and both hardcover and paperback are free to drop off. They are sorted and redistributed by Pacesetter Books, a church-based non-profit that assesses books for reusability and recycles those that cannot be redistributed.

You can also bring already-shredded documents to the book recycling area for recycling; please bring them in a paper bag, stapled or taped shut.

Electronics collection will include free recycling of holiday light strings, computers, laptops, stereos, DVD players, printers, keyboards, mice, phones, electronic games, holiday light strings and more, all of which can be recycled at no charge. TVs (of any size, type, or age) and computer monitors will also be collected, but they have a cost.

The cost of recycling TVs and monitors, measured diagonally, is $25 for screens under 21 inches, and $35 for screens 21 inches and over. You can pay onsite with cash or card.

Electronics are collected and recycled by eWorks Electronics Services, a non-profit whose mission is to employ individuals with developmental disabilities to sort and disassemble the electronic equipment. Payment for TVs and monitors goes directly to eWorks and helps fund their work.

Toys for Tots 

Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 244 million children have been assisted.
