Environmental Defenders recycling drive to be held in Woodstock

WOODSTOCK – The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County will collect recyclables from 9 a.m. until noon Saturday in front of the Farm Bureau, 1102 McConnell Road in Woodstock. 

The Defenders accept household batteries, car batteries and lithium and button batteries. They 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 to offset the costs involved in processing them.

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.

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. People may drive up and drop off their recyclables with volunteers, who help to unload and sort the materials. 

For information about the recycling schedule and types of materials accepted at each location or to access the Green Guide recycling directory which is put out annually by the Lou Marchi Total Recycling Institute at MCC, visit the Defenders’ website at http://www.mcdef.org/recycling_information.htm, call 815-338-0393 or find them on Facebook.
