Shred it and Forget it!

As of January 1, 2012 electronic devices such as televisions, computers, and monitors were banned from being disposed of in Illinois landfills.  Several communities and businesses in Cook County provide drop-off locations and events for electronic recycling services.  The Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois, Vintage Tech Recyclers and LG Electronics are sponsoring such a collection event on June 22nd at the United Center.  Please see the below for additional details.  If you would like to let us know about an event, have questions regarding disposal of particular materials, or other solid waste related issues, please contact Cook County Department of Environmental Control at 312-603-8217.
