RECYCLE ANYTHING HERE

HOW TO RECYCLE JUST ABOUT ANYTHING!

Responsible disposal of household items is necessary for a healthy environment. This Recycling & Disposal Guide helps you determine the best way to handle unwanted items. It provides options for reusing or donating when possible; information on what can be recycled and how to recycle it; and lets you know about items that require special handling or disposal because of their effect on our health and our environment. Maintaining a quality physical environment – clean air, water and land – is one of the main goals of Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful and is the sole purpose for this Recycling & Disposal Guide.
