Since 1999, SWANCC has provided environmentally-responsible recycling for end-of-life computers and electronics.
Starting January 1, 2012, the Electronics Products Recycling and Reuse Act (SB2313) bans televisions and computer monitors from going into Illinois landfills.
Under the new legislation, only the materials listed to the right will be accepted in SWANCC's permanent and community recycling programs. Please review the Cook County Electronics Reuse and Recycling brochure and video found to the right to learn why electronics are banned from Illinois landfills and options for reuse or recycling.
For a list of recycling options for items not taken in the program such as microwaves, home appliances, dehumidifiers, humidifiers and air conditioners, visit SWANCC’s Green Pages directory.
Do not bring household hazardous waste or other unlisted items. Do not drop off electronics other than during the posted dates and times. Thank you for your cooperation!
Supply-Chain Services, Inc. (SSI) contracts with SWANCC to responsibly recycle electronics. Watch this SSI recycling video for information that shows how your electronics' hard drives are erased, demanufactured and processed.
