Effective January 1, 2012, electronic devices may no longer be disposed of in landfills in Illinois. They must be disposed of through a collector/recycler/refurbisher licensed and approved by the State of Illinois. Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful is an approved collector of most electronic devices, except televisions and CRT computer monitors.

In 2015, Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful recycled more than 80 tons of metals and electronics. Since 1998, more than 3.25 million pounds of metal, household appliances and electronics have been collected to re-use resources, prevent pollution and prolong landfill life.
