PLEASE NOTE** All Three April Events are scheduled on Saturdays. The routine weekday event, typically held on the fourth Monday of each month, is cancelled until further notice. This is a safety precaution that will help in minimizing potential exposure risks to SWALCO office staff due to the increase presence of outside contractor personnel in the facility that are required for those events.

 **Safety is crucial during your visit. Please Stay In Your Vehicle and Wear Masks**

 at our facility located at: 1311 N. Estes Street, Gurnee, IL 60031

APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED for Household Chemical Waste Events located at our Gurnee Facility to ensure safety & efficiency. Collections are for residential waste only. No business waste will be accepted. All SWALCO HCW Collection Events are FREE for Illinois residents ONLY.
