See SWANCC’s website for more information.

SWANCC provides environmentally-responsible recycling programs for end-of-life computers and electronics for residents of its member communities. In 2012, Illinois adopted legislation that prohibits landfilling of "Covered and Eligible Electronic Devices" which are included under the Acceptable Materials list on the right. Under the Illinois Environmental Protection Act, there is a limit of 7 items per household and no electronics can be accepted from municipalities, schools, businesses, or institutions.

The following items will be accepted for recycling.  Please remove electronics from plastic packaging and boxes before bringing to a SWANCC drop-off location.

  • Cable Receivers
  • Cell Phones
  • Computer cable
  • Computer monitors
  • Computers (Desktops, Notebooks, Tablets)
  • Converter Boxes
  • Fax Machines
  • Keyboards
  • Mice
  • MP3 Players
  • Portable Digital Assistants (PDAs)
  • Printers (Multi-function Printers)
  • Satellite Receivers
  • Scanners
  • Televisions (All Types)
  • Video Game Consoles
  • Video Recorders/Players
  • Zip Drives

Please do not drop off electronics other than during posted dates and times.

Small household appliances, such as toasters, blenders, coffee makers, and lamps can be thrown away in the garbage if they cannot be donated for reuse. Microwaves can be taken to a scrap metal company for recovery. Some electronics may be taken to retailers such as a Goodwill or Best Buy store for recycling. Please call first to confirm that your items will be accepted. See the Agency’s Green Pages Directory for registered recyclers.
