Recycling collection set

WOODSTOCK – The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County will conduct a recycling collection from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Farm Bureau parking lot, 1102 McConnell Road, in Woodstock.

The Defenders will accept household batteries, car batteries, lithium and button batteries, fluorescent tubes, clean Styrofoam, video 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 them.

Electronics, such as computers, phones, printers, clean microwaves and electronic toys, also are accepted. TV sets and computer monitors require a donation of $10 to $35.

Those who become a new member of the Defenders at the recycling drive, at the basic or higher level, will receive two coupons to recycle a TV set or monitor for free.

The Defenders hold a recycling drive on the second Saturday of each month, alternating between McHenry in odd-numbered months and Woodstock in even-numbered months.
