Residential Electronics Recycling Program
SWALCO DOES NOT accept electronics at the Gurnee Household Chemical Waste Facility
On January 1, 2012, the 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 / Non-acceptable Items page for a list of acceptable and prohibited electronics). Additionally, on August 25, 2017, Governor Rauner signed the Consumer Electronics Recycling Act (CERA), which modernizes many elements of the electronics recycling program in Illinois by establishing a convenience standard for electronics recycling which will ensure a minimum number of collection locations in each participating Illinois county. Although CERA took immediate effect, many of the programmatic elements of the law will not be implemented until January 1, 2019.
