Electronics Recycling

The Kane County Electronics Recycling Program is for residential equipment only, and includes 2 year-round drop-off locations and a schedule of Saturday collection events (see below for ​details). ​​Businesses can see this list of electronics recycling companies​ to assist with their needs.

We take a variety of other ​materials at our events, including books, paint, and documents​ for shredding. Scroll down for specifics.

Why is there a fee on TVs and Monitors? TVs and monitors contain lead and/or me​rcury 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!

Staffed sites: These sites are staffed. They will help you unload, take your payment (cash or card)​, and issue a tax deduction receipt.

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 Defens​e​ Standard 7-pass kill disk. This also applies to the Naperville site which is managed and served by eWorks as well​.
BOOKS (can be recycled at events, see below)

Books can be of any age, in any condition, either paperback or hardcover. They are assessed for reuse and redistributed if possible. Otherwise they are sent for recycling​​​​.​
