A Reminder About the Proper Disposal of Electronics
August 6, 2013 12:18 PM
Since 1999, SWANCC has provided environmentally-responsible recycling for end-of-life computers and electronics. Under the new legislation, only the materials listed below will be accepted in SWANCC's three recycling program options. You can drop off your acceptable electronic equipment at the SWANCC facility listed below:
Glenview Transfer Station
1151 N River Rd
Across from the Maryville Academy
Saturdays: 9:00 am - 11:30 am
(From Park Ridge, take Oakton or Touhy Avenue to River Road and turn right, heading north. Proceed on River Road until you reach the facility which will be located on the right side, just past Central Road.)

Do not bring household hazardous waste or other unlisted items. Do not drop off electronics other than during the posted dates and times.
The City of Park Ridge will be holding its semi-annual Electronics Recycling Event on Saturday, October 19, 2013. This year, the City will not only be collecting electronics, but also textiles.
