Vintage Tech's At-Your-Door Service by the Numbers

With the upcoming Illinois landfill ban on electronics, we would just like to highlight one of our most convenient recycling services, the At-Your-Door program. After only eight months, we’ve already collected an impressive amount of electronics. Here’s a look at our program so far, by the numbers:

  • 4,000: the number of pounds of electronics that Vintage Tech picks up daily from community homes.
  • 225,000: number of pounds of electronics Vintage Tech has collected from our At-Your-Door Service in just eight months!
  • 3,000: number of homes that have utilized the front door pickup program so far.
  • 37: number of communites in Will and DuPage county that host our At-Your-Door program (although the program is set to expand to Kane, Kendall, and Cook counties in the spring!)
  • 17: the number of electronics that will be banned from landfills on January 1, 2012.

Our At-Your-Door service makes it easy for “banned” electronics to be responsibly recycled, and only requires you to fill out our online pickup request form. For more information on our program, check out our website, or call (877) 625-7945.
