The Electronic Products Recycling & Reuse Act establishes a statewide system for recycling and/or reusing a specific set of covered electronic devices that are discarded from residences by requiring electronic manufacturers to participate in the management of discarded and unwanted electronic products.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO CALL the collector to find out which items they accept for recycling. A collector can appear on the list below and MAY NOT BE ACCEPTING ALL OF THE 17 covered electronic devices.
In addition, the Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act states that a consumer may not be charged a fee when bringing their item for recycling, unless a financial incentive of equal or greater value, such as a coupon, is provided. A fee for premium services such as curbside collection, home pick-up, or a similar method of collection is allowed.
If you have questions which cannot be answered by navigating through the electronic waste recycling pages, please email Michelle Bentley.
No electronics are accepted at Illinois EPA.
