New E-Waste Recycling Law
Everyone received the following notice with their last water bills, but we thought a reminder would be useful. If you need assistance finding out where to recycle something, please call us at the library. We have an updated list of local recyclers and if something isn't on the list, we will find out where it needs to go!
The Spring Clean up for 2012 is scheduled for April 2nd through the 6th on your regularly scheduled pick up day ... NEW THIS YEAR: ELECTRONIC WASTE, INCLUDING MONITORS and TELEVISIONS CANNOT BE COLLECTED.
Effective January 1, 2012 a new law in the state of Illinois will effectively BAN several types of electronics being dumped at a landfill. The law establishes a statewide system for recycling and/or reusing computers, monitors, televisions, and printers discarded from residences by requiring electronic manufacturers to participate in the management of discarded and unwanted electronic products.
