Election Sign Recycling Event Set For May 14 And May 15

Election Sign Recycling Event Set For May 14 And May 15

It’s not in Kane County, but as they say, it’s close enough for government work.

DuPage County, through the efforts of Environmental Committee Chair Sheila Rutledge, is partnering with Lakeshore Recycling Systems to collect and recycle corrugated plastic and cardboard election campaign signs.

Following the hyper-local April 6 election campaigns, there may be a few of those.

The recycling event will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, May 14, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 15, at the DuPage County Campus Main Entrance in Wheaton, IL. Recyclers should enter from County Farm Road.

The event is free of charge and limited to corrugated plastic signs only. Metal sign stands must be removed and will be collected and recycled separately at the event.
