The Kane County Electronics Recycling Program includes both the weekday drop-offs and the monthly event (see below details) and is for Kane County residents and all residents of border towns (like Algonquin, Elgin, Aurora, Montgomery). The program is for residential material only, no businesses. Businesses can see this list of electronics recycling companies to assist with their needs.
