The last Kane County recycling event of 2019 is coming up soon, and it’s going to be a NEW LOCATION, so be sure to mark your calendars.
Kane County Recycles is hosting the event, which is for electronics and books between 8 a.m. and noon Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019, at Anderson Park on Brown Road in Campton Hills, IL 60175.
The event is for electronics and books only. It will NOT include document shredding or paint. Click on this link for a list of 2020 event dates.
Books of any age or condition, and both hardcover and paperback, may be recycled for free. They are sorted and redistributed by B & B Books and 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 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 for recycling TVs and monitors is $25 for screens under 21 inches, measured diagonally, and $35 for screens 21 inches or more, measured diagonally. 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. Your payment for TVs and monitors goes directly to them and helps fund that work.
