The next FREE countywide electronics collection event will be held
in spring 2016. Until then, there are plenty of local recyclers that
will accept your old electronics throughout the year. We recommend
you call ahead first. Please see the guides below for more information,
or call 217.403.4780.

Electronics were banned from Illinois landfills on January 2012. Many electronic products contain toxic lead, mercury, cadmium, and other materials that pose environmental and health risks that must be managed. Many electronic items contain metals, plastics, or leaded glass that can be recycled into basic commodities or products, and then re-marketed for re-use. The re-use of these components conserves natural resources and energy, and contributes to reduced air and water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
