E-Waste Ban
As of January 1st, the Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act went into effect. The law bans all electronics from going into landfills as these products contain hazardous material. According to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, the law “establishes a statewide system for recycling and/or reusing computers, monitors, televisions, and printers discarded from residents by requiring electronic manufacturers to participate in the management of discarded and unwanted electronic products”. Once the law goes into effect, Allied Waste will no longer be able to pick up electronic waste as part of your curbside program. Any e-waste placed at the curb or inside containers, will be left.

Please visit the Illinois EPA website http://www.epa.state.il.us/land/electronic-waste-recycling for more information and a list of Registered Collectors, Recyclers and Refurbishers.
