Algonquin Township Highway Department to host Saturday recycling event for residents

The Algonquin Township Highway Department is hosting a recycling event for township residents from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, but there will be some changes.

Recyclables will be accepted at the township building at 3702 Route 14 in Crystal Lake. However, entrance to the event will be at The Hollows, the neighboring McHenry County Conservation District recreation area – the entrance to the township offices will be used for exit only.

Township residents can drop off window-unit air conditioners, answering machines, computers and video game consoles, camcorders and cameras, cellphones and landline phones, small humidifiers and dehumidifiers, fax machines, microwave ovens, MP3 and music players, power tools, small appliances, stereos, typewriters, car batteries, used motor oil and tires. A recycling fee will be charged for tires.

The township will not be accepting paint, refrigerators, freezers, hazardous waste, fluorescent tubes and bulbs, or household batteries.

Recyclables will only be accepted from residents of Algonquin Township.

Brush and log drop-off, and mulch pickup, will be suspended during the recycling event, but will resume when it ends.

For information, call 847-639-2700, ext. 6, or follow the highway department on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AlgonquinTownshipHighwayDepartment.
