Electronics Recycling

Electronics is one of our biggest challenges in environmentally friendly waste disposal. Recycling and proper disposal enables sustainable use of materials and prevents the release of hazardous materials into our environment. Per State of Illinois law, as of January 1, 2012 landfilling of electronics is prohibited. Thus, refuse haulers will not remove electronic devices from properties and property owners must find other avenues to discard these items. The State Statute can be found at http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/95/PDF/095-0959.pdf.

The Village of Lombard has partnered with VintageTech Recyclers to provide monthly free electronics recycling at the commuter parking lot at Main Street and Parkside Avenue on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m.-noon, April through November. Note that traffic enters off of Main Street and residents are encouraged to arrive after the first hour for fastest service.

There are numerous locations to drop off electronics free of charge. Of those listed on the DuPage County Recycling & Green Events page, the following two locations in the Village of Lombard are open during regular business hours:
