Defenders plan recycling collection
McHENRY – The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County will conduct a recycling collection for fluorescent tubes, Styrofoam, electronics and batteries from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Metra station parking lot, 4005 Main St. in McHenry.
The Defenders’ recycling drive accepts household batteries, car batteries, lithium and button batteries. The Defenders also collect fluorescent tubes, clean Styrofoam, VHS and cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs, packing peanuts and reusable, unpopped bubble wrap. A donation is requested for fluorescent bulbs and batteries that are brought in to offset the costs to process these items.
Electronics, such as computers, phones, printers, clean microwaves and electronic toys, are accepted. TVs and computer monitors will be accepted for a donation of $10 to $35. Those who become new members of the Defenders at the recycling drive at the basic or higher level get two coupons to recycle a television or monitor for free.
