Do the dog days of summer have you itching to do some decluttering? Elgin Recycling can help with that, especially where your electronics are concerned.
Recycling those old or unwanted televisions, monitors, computers, tablets and cell phones rather than throwing them in the trash bin is a great way to help conserve the Earth’s natural resources and avoid air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
Because of Elgin Recycling’s commitment to providing homes and businesses in the Chicagoland area with a greener alternative for disposing of electronics, the company is hosting another special summer e-waste recycling opportunity.
The Electronics Event will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, at each of the company’s four locations.
During the event, all electronics will be accepted, including televisions and computer monitors at a discounted rate of $15 for those under 21 inches, and $25 for those 21 inches and over.
To determine size and recycling fee, measure screens diagonally from inside corner to inside corner. The special Saturday discount does not apply to wood console and rear projection TVs.
Another perk to doing some electronics decluttering? You could make some extra money. Elgin Recycling accepts and pays for all types of cell phones and tablets within the company’s mobile device recycling platform. Call with the make and model of your old device to receive a quote.
Don’t let the unwanted or outdated electronics in your household continue to just sit and collect dust. Make a positive impact for your home and the planet by bringing those items to Elgin Recycling’s upcoming special electronics recycling event.
