Final Electronic Recycling Drop-off Before Program Changes
Starting in January, the types of items being accepted at the monthly electronic recycling drop-off will change due to state legislation involving electronics companies. The following items will not be accepted at the monthly events: small appliances such as toaster ovens, coffee pots or microwaves; household batteries; stereos/radios.
You will still be able to drop off computers, computer equipment, televisions (a fee applies to recycle TVs and monitors), printers, DVD players, video game consoles, cell phones, tablets, phones, cable boxes, fax machines, servers, VCRs, phones, power supplies, wires/cables/adapters.
The next electronic recycling collection takes place from 9 a.m. to noon this Saturday (Dec. 8) at the Public Works Storage Yard, 820 W Liberty Drive.
Please note that the curbside electronic recycling program offered through the City’s garbage/recycling hauler will not be changing. For more information non both programs, see www.wheaton.il.us/electronics.
