Elmhurst to Capitilize on Electronic Recycling Drop

Elmhurst, Illinois is ready to take advantage of its annual Electronics and Recyclables Drop Event allowing you to clear a few items from storage. The event will be held April 1, 2017 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church parking lot.

Everyone struggles when it comes to handling old electronics and figuring out what to do with them. It can be easy to throw some of these items in the trash, however state law prohibits it and for good reason. These products may have toxics and non-disposable parts that negatively affect the Earth—not to mention the proportions of these items that can be recycled or repurposed.

The event will accept all sorts of various items; only old TV’s will require a small fee. Computers, video game consoles, cell phones, servers, lawn mowers, snow blowers, coppers, brasses, leads, pots, pans, cords, wires, circuit boards, many forms of batteries, and much more will cost nothing to drop off at the lot.

Can’t make the April 1st date? No worries! There will be another event held at Elmhurst College on April 29th. The Elmhurst College Recycling Extravaganza is held in the Alexander Street parking lot.


The April 1st date is located at 142 E Third Street, Elmhurst, Illinois 60126
