[ARCHIVED] Electronics Recycling Day November 14th

Electronics Re-Cycling

The Village of Oak Brook & Flood Brothers will be sponsoring an Electronics Recycling Day Saturday November 14, 2020 9:00am to 12:00pm Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club Parking Lot 800 Oak Brook Rd.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency states electronic waste is now the fastest growing segment of our nation's garbage production. There are ways that each and every one of us can turn this around -- by recycling! Electronic waste, including computers and TVs, contain toxic materials such as lead, chromium, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, nickel, zinc and other potentially harmful chemicals. The EPA warns when electronics that contain these materials are not recycled or are not disposed of properly, the hazardous chemicals can contaminate the ground water and present additional environmental concerns.

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED ITEMS: Computers, Laptops, Servers, Flat Screen Computer Monitors, Televisions*, Printers, Facsimile, Scanners, VCR and DVD Players, Video Game Consoles, Cable and Converter Boxes, Satellite Receivers, Electronic Keyboards, Mice, Portable Music Players, Home Electronics, Blenders, Toasters, Irons, Wire, Cables, Adapters, Power Supplies, Cell Phones, Modems, Tablets, Phones, Docking Stations. All acceptable items are FREE of charge

*There will be a limit of 3 TVs per resident
