Electronics Recycling
Electronics Banned from Landfills Effective January 1, 2012
Beginning January 1, 2012, electronic equipment can no longer be collected with regular trash due to the landfill ban in Illinois. The Village of Montgomery offers monthly drop-off recycling events to allow residents to dispose of electronics and other common recyclable items that are not collected curbside. These special collection efforts will allow these items to be recycled instead of depositing them in a landfill where they can contaminate the ground.

Monthly Recycling Collection Events in Montgomery
The Village of Montgomery hosts monthly recycling collection events throughout the year.  The recycling events help residents dispose of electronics and other recyclables that are not currently collected curbside.  During the event, you can bring electronics, electrical items (anything that plugs in), all types of batteries, metal, and toner cartridges to the recycling event location to help keep these items out of landfills.    **PLEASE NOTE**   Due to an overwhelming number of TVs that have been dropped off, no old tube TVs or computer monitors will be accepted until further notice.

These recycling events will not accept paint, fluorescent light bulbs or car tires. 

Recycling collection events are held at 10 Civic Center Avenue in front of the Montgomery Police Department.

Recycling collection events are held from 9:00 a.m. until noon on the third Saturday of each month.  Please call (630) 896-8080 ext. 9003 with any questions.
