Residents will again be able to recycle their unwanted electronics.
The City has announced they are resuming electronic recycling at Naperville’s environmental collection campus thanks to a new partnership with DuPage County and eWorks Electronics Services Inc.
The collection point, located on Fort Hill Drive, will begin operation on Monday, November 7th, with an attendant on duty collecting certain items for a fee which will go toward helping the developmentally disabled.
Linda LaCloche, Communications Manager for the City of Naperville, broke down the pay structure. “For units 21 inches or smaller there is a 25 dollar charge and for anything over 21 inches there’s a 35 dollar charge,” she said. “So it is fee based but it’s something that they’ll be able to do here five days a week and actually we will recycling items from anyone who wants to use the facility.”
The city previously shut down the electronic recycling program back in September of 2015 after an overabundance of material forced then partner, New Life, to suspend the program indefinitely.
