[ARCHIVED] Recycle corrugated plastic campaign signs at Village Hall

Corrugated plastic signs are common during campaign seasons, but are not easily recyclable since they are larger and may be chemically different from the plastics that are commonly accepted for curbside recycling.  Fortunately, a recycling program is being provided by Lombard Public Works and Lakeshore Recycling Services to reduce landfilled waste due to corrugated plastic.

Two containers will be placed at Lombard Village Hall, from March 18-23, to recycle corrugated plastic signs and their steel stands. The public is welcome to use these bins while they are available. The materials will be recycled by Lakeshore Recycling Services. 

Plastic bag signs should be discarded as refuse and cardboard signs should be recycled curbside. Steel stands should still be recycled in the bins at the Village Hall. When corrugated plastic and plastic sheets are incorrectly placed in curbside recycling, they are separated out as waste at the recycling facility and transported for disposal in landfills.
