Costs: TVs and Monitors cost $25 (under 21" measured diagonally) or $35 (21" or over). All other acceptable items are free to drop off. Pay onsite with cash or card or pay online in advance HERE (if you use this option, you MUST print the receipt and bring it with you). These same costs apply at the collection events listed below.
Why is there a fee on TVs and Monitors? TVs and monitors contain lead and/or mercury and must be processed as hazardous material, a more expensive process that makes the consumer-based fee a necessity. The fee is paid directly to the County's contracted electronics recycler - eWorks, a non-profit that employs people with developmental disabilities. You are helping a good cause and responsibly disposing of your used electronics!
Data security: Kane County contracts with eWorks Recycling Services, located in Elk Grove Village. All data stored on computer hard drives will be completely erased or destroyed under the highest security (meeting all FACTA privacy protection requirements). They use the BLANCO data erasure software and the Department of Defense Standard 7-pass kill disk. This also applies to the Naperville site which is managed and served by eWorks as well.
