Have an old TV or computer monitor you’d like to get rid of, but you’re not sure how to dispose of it? Bring it to SWANCC’s Electronics Recycling Day on Saturday, May 19, at the nearby Wheeling Public Works Facility, 77 W. Hintz in Wheeling. Remember, as of this year, the Electronics Products Recycling and Reuse Act (SB2313) bans TVs and computer monitors from Illinois landfills. This is a great, green way to rid yourself of those old clunky items.
You can always drop off smaller electronics like phones, iPods, and laptops for recycling at the library. The collection bin is located near the Returns Desk. Don’t forget, this Saturday the library is hosting a Cool Tools Day on the first floor. Come learn about all types of electronic devices as representatives from Apple and Best Buy will be here to give demos and answer questions. There will also be a drawing for store gift cards.
