Defenders set to collect recyclables in McHenry
McHENRY – The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County recyclers will collect fluorescent tubes, Styrofoam, electronics and batteries from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Metra Station parking lot, 4005 Main St.
The Defenders collect certain items that usually are not accepted by curbside programs and that would be harmful to the environment if put in a landfill.
The Defenders accept household batteries, car batteries, lithium and button batteries, as well as VHS and cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs, packing peanuts and reusable, unpopped bubble wrap. A donation is requested for fluorescent bulbs and batteries to offset the costs of processing those items.
