Electronic Recycling Drop-off Locations

See Kane County Recycling Event page for upcoming events. 

Due to statewide problems with the electronics recycling law and the sheer volume of TVs being received, all Kane County permanent drop off locations have been suspended indefinitely. 
But don't panic! The Recycling Event​ will continue monthly as an option for residents. Thank you for your patience while we seek solutions. Check here periodically for updated information.
