Will County Offers FREE Household Electronic Recycling Pick Up
Will County now offers a new, convenient electronic recycling pick up service for Troy Township residents. This program is a free service offered to all residents with first floor entrances.
The Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act, passed by the Illinois General Assembly in 2008, states some electronic materials will no longer be accepted at landfills beginning January 2012. Will County has been actively preparing for this new legislation, establishing electronic recycling sites at numerous key locations across the region.
This program will be the first free household pickup service offered in Illinois. Residents will be able to schedule a pickup of unwanted electronics by contacting Vintage Tech Recyclers.
Items accepted include: computers, laptops, monitors, printers, televisions, all types of telephones, answering machines, computer mouse devices, keyboards, zip drives, computer cables, string lights, microwaves, fax, scanners, MP3s, PDAs, video game consoles, video cassette players/recorders, DVD players and more. There is a limit of 10 items per service call, but future service dates can be arranged as necessary.
Drop-off services will remain available for apartment residents or anyone without front-door access. For more information or to schedule a pickup contact Vintage Tech Recyclers at (877) 786-4715
