WESTMONT – Beginning this month, the village of Westmont will continue its partnership with DuPage County, the Westmont Park District and Creative Recycling, Inc. to provide a monthly Electronics Recycling Program in Westmont from May through December.

The program will be held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday and then will be held the same time on the second Friday of each month through December at the Ty Warner Park parking lot on the southwest corner of Blackhawk Drive and Plaza Drive.

The program allows residents to drop off unwanted electronics and other items that cannot be discarded in the regular trash collection at no cost.

“This program has been well-received by residents of the area,” said Public Works Director Steve May. “Not only is it convenient for for our citizens, but it keeps these items with harmful materials out of landfills.”

For more information regarding what types of items are accepted in the program, visit the DuPage County recycling information page:
