Just found this good info and thought I would pass it along: The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) offers a convenient way to recycle old computers and electronics: At Home Computer/Electronics Program, an option for residents who prefer to have their equipment picked up from their front steps.
To arrange a pickup, email [email protected] or call (847) 724-9205. Bi-weekly pick-ups will be scheduled from April 30 through August 31.Residents will be charged $25 via credit or debit card to offset program costs and can recycle up to six items per pick up
No individual item can exceed 50 lbs. Items accepted but do not count as "an item" include cell phones and calculators only.
The program collects desktop or notebook computers (including mouse, keyboard and power cords), monitors, printers, scanners, fax machines, electric typewriters, answering machines, shredders, postage machines, televisions (up to 20"), VHS/DVD Players, boom boxes, stereo equipment and microwaves.
