Recycling in Illinois

phone with a broken screenRecycling in Illinois is so very important! Some of the biggest reasons to recycle include eliminating unnecessary trash in landfills and saving valuable natural resources. When you recycle instead of throwing recyclable items in the trash, the need to manufacture some materials is decreased, therefore preventing even more environmental damage!

While it is important to recycle paper, plastics, and glass, it is just as important to recycle those old electronics you have been thinking about getting rid of! There may be toxic substances in those electronics that can be harmful to the environment when not disposed of properly. There are even consequences now for throwing out electronics in the trash thanks to state and national electronics recycling regulations!
