State law prohibits putting electronic items in the trash or curbside recycling. The Village of Oswego’s waste hauler, Groot Industries, collects electronic waste for curbside collection at no additional charge to the resident. With 24-hour notice, electronic materials including CRT or tube style televisions will be collected.
To request electronic collection, please contact Groot at 1-877-775-1200.
There may be a charge for items requiring more than a single person to lift. This charge is determined by Groot Industries.
Residents may also recycle electronics through private companies that offer the service. Locally, eCycle Solutions offers electronics recycling on the fourth Saturday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m. at Woodman's Market, 151 Hansen Boulevard, North Aurora. Accepted items include: computers, monitors, printers, scanners, laptops, tablets, servers, flat-panel televisions, cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, paper and cardboard, batteries, cell phones and chargers, phone systems, cables, radios, speakers, projectors, routers and modems, FAX machines, PDAs, scrap metal, gaming consoles, external drivers, DVD and VHS players, alarm clocks, and microwaves. Call 630-608-6102 or email@example.com for more information.
