Attention all Lake County business, schools, churches, non
for profits and units of government!
Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) will be hosting a one day only
special electronics recycling collection event for broken and unwanted
electronics. This one-day special event will
be held on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Village of
Lindenhurst Village Hall Garage located at 2301 E. Sand Lake Road in
Recycling fees will be
assessed for televisions and cathode ray tube monitors ($35 for TV’s 21” and
larger, $25 for TV’s 20” or smaller, and $25 for each cathode ray tube monitor)
all other acceptable electronics will be collected at no cost. Cash, check or major credit cards are accepted
for payment of applicable recycling fees.
SWALCO routinely provides no cost
opportunities for Lake County residents to recycle their broken or unwanted
electronics from their homes through a network of drop off locations operating
around Lake County. However, State law limits these locations to accepting only
residentially generated electronics. SWALCO has recognized there is a need to
offer electronics recycling opportunities to Lake County businesses, schools,
non for profits and units of government whose electronics do not apply to the
residential generated definition of the Law. To address this need, SWALCO has
partnered with eWorks Electronics Services Inc., to provide a service called
the Business Concierge Program.
This one day only special
electronics recycling collection event will provide Lake County businesses,
schools, non for profits and units of government the opportunity to drop off
limited quantities of electronics (approximately 100 electronic items per
guest). Organizations with larger quantities of electronics are asked to contact
SWALCO directly to arrange a special pickup.
All Lake County businesses, schools, non for profits and units of
government must provide a Federal tax identification letter or business card in
order to be permitted to drop off electronics during this one day only special
electronics collection event.
The following is a list of some but not all of the
electronic items that will be accepted at no cost: Personal Computers
