E-Waste Drop-off Program

Starting January 1, 2012, the State of Illinois began enforcing the recycling law known as the Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act. The law bans certain electronic items, such as computers and televisions, from Illinois landfills. Elk Grove Village residents will no longer be able to place certain unwanted or unused electronics out at the curb for disposal after that date.

To assist residents of member communities the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) has developed an environmentally safe way to dispose of unwanted or unused electronic items. Four SWANCC communities will be operating ongoing old electronics drop-off programs.
