Recycle Your TVs, Computers, Clothes, Books, Latex Paint at Oct. 10 Event

Kane County’s next Recycling Event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020 — and this event includes cans of latex paint and spray-paint cans.

The event takes place from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Kane County Branch Court parking lot, 540 S. Randall Road, St. Charles.

“This will be the last event of the year to recycle paint cans and spray cans — so it’s a great chance to clear out the garage for winter!” said Kane County Recycling Coordinator Jennifer Jarland.

Kane County will be accepting electronics, clothing and textiles, books (any size, age or condition) and paint (cans of latex paint and spray-paint cans).

In the safe delivery of services plan reviewed and revised by the Kane County Health Department and reviewed by state’s Attorney’s Office, steps are outlined that minimize contact during recycling events.

Staff wear and renew fresh masks and gloves, and regularly sanitize their hands and the tablet computer they use for transactions. Residents are asked to follow the below safety protocol in order to utilize the drop-off locations and the events.
