SWALCO DOES NOT accept electronics at the Gurnee Facility at ANY time.
On January 1, 2012, the Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act landfill ban for certain electronic devices became effective. Electronic items such as televisions, monitors, computers and printers are some of the most common items that are no longer allowed in the regular trash (*see our accepted and non-accepted page for a full list of prohibited electronics).
THIS SWALCO RESIDENTIAL ELECTRONICS RECYCLING PROGRAM IS FOR LAKE COUNTY RESIDENTS ONLY.
SWALCO supports four (4) Year-Round Residential Electronics Recycling Drop Off Locations within Lake County.
The Year-Round Residential Electronics Recycling Drop Off Locations are open free of charge to Lake County residents during listed hours of operation, appointments are not required. Please visit our Year-Round Drop Off Location page for locations and hours of operation and additional information.
A LIMIT OF UP TO TEN ELECTRONIC ITEMS MAY BE DROPPED OFF PER VISIT (excluding miscellaneous cords and cables).
All SWALCO supported Year-Round Residential Electronics Recycling Drop Off Locations will remain open throughout the 2018 program year.
