South Elgin Electronics Drop-off to Close Permanently at End of 2017

South Elgin Electronics Drop-off to Close Permanently 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, Dec. 29, 2017.

The county and its electronics recycling contractor, eWorks Electronics Services, have partnered with the village of South Elgin, which hosted the site since September 2016. Because South Elgin Public Works Department staff are now located at another building, they are not able to continue to provide assistance with fork lifting the materials into the trucks, 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.


  • Address: 517 E. Fabyan Parkway
  • Hours: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday

West Dundee Public Works

  • Address: 900 Angle Tarn, West Dundee
  • Hours: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday

Kane County Recycles will continue to offer electronics collection events scheduled on Saturdays throughout 2018. Please see the county website at for more information and the complete list of event dates.
