Champaign electronics recycling registration opens early September

If you are like hundreds of other people in Champaign County you probably have an old television or computer monitor laying around that you need to get out of the basement or garage and into the trash. Saturday, October 14, 2017, is your next opportunity to chuck it and other unwanted electronic devices at the Electronics Collection and Recycling event at Parkland College in Champaign.

Advance registration, which must be completed online (recycling registration event site) and required prior to dropping off items, opens on September 5 at 8am. A resident can only register once, however additional residents from the same address may also submit a registration requests through the site. Once the online form is successfully completed, residents should receive confirmation email or text and a postcard by mail a week prior to the drop off on Saturday.

There is a two TV limit per card and a ten item limit per trip. Other allowable items include video game consoles; desktop and laptops computers; computer networking cables, switches and hubs; telephones; microwaves; and office machines. A complete list of acceptable items can be found here.

Light bulbs, air conditioning units and other Freon based units like refrigerators and freezer will not be accepted at the event.

The event will run rain, lightning, snow - heavens forbid - or shine. Volunteers and staff will help remove items from vehicles to help keep traffic moving as quickly as possible.
