Village of Downers Grove to offer free electronics recycling Saturday

DOWNERS GROVE – The Village of Downers Grove will offer its free, monthly electronics recycling this Saturday.

The village and Creative Recycling offer electronics recycling from 9 a.m. to noon on the first Saturday of the month.

The drop-off location is at Village Hall, 801 Burlington Ave., in the employee parking lot at the rear of the building, off Curtiss Street.

Because the site is staffed by community volunteers, gates will be opened at 9 a.m. and closed promptly at noon.

The recycling service is offered because as of Jan. 1, 2012, TVs, computers, laptops, monitors, printers, computer peripherals, VCRs/DVD players, gaming systems, MP3 players and other electronic items are banned from Illinois landfills.
