Responsible Electronics Recycling in Illinois

We are pleased to offer the citizens of Illinois proper disposal of their unwanted electronics in support of the Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act. It is important that these devices be managed at the end of their useful lives in such a way as to prevent harm to the environment, the communities in which the devices are disposed and the workers processing the equipment. At the same time, these devices contain material that can be used in the manufacturing of new products. Material such as steel, aluminum, plastic, copper and precious metals can be separated and returned to the marketplace, giving them new life in new products.
