***The weekly Electronics Recycling dropoff in Hoffman Estates is being held every Monday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Hoffman Estates Village Hall.***
To assist residents with collecting old electronics and to ensure environmentally safe recycling of these materials, the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) developed an Electronics Recycling Drop-off Program to collect electronics on an ongoing basis at no cost to Hoffman Estates residents and other SWANCC Community villages such as Elk Grove Village. Proof of residency will be required.
Village residents can drop off electronics each Monday at the Village Hall, 1900 Hassell Road, Hoffman Estates. Your cooperation in adhering to the times and dates is much appreciated.
Electronics will only be accepted on Mondays. Electronics from businesses, churches and schools will NOT be accepted.
The program begins on April 3, 2017 and lasts through November.
Visit www.swancc.org for a full list of acceptable items.
The Village of Hanover Park has also opened up their recycling to ANY residential household. You are welcome to recycle your holiday lights and extension cords beginning December 1 and ending in late January.
Take them to the Public Works Garage at 2121 W. Lake Street for disposal. This dropoff is for HOUSEHOLDS only.

Over the past year, the Village of Hanover Park has served as a collection location for electronic recycling through a program administered through DuPage County. During this time, the Village has collected over 26,000 tons of various electronics.
Therefore, as of July 1, 2015 the Village will no longer serve as a collection point and cannot accept electronics for recycling. Staff is working to hire another vendor. As stated in the Hanover Park press release of June 30, “the intent is to bring back electronic recycling as a service to the residents as soon as possible.”
We certainly wish them luck in getting the program reinstated! It served as a wonderful location and the ease of use couldn’t have been better. Should you wish to find other options for recycling your electronics, I encourage you to check out the County Recycling Guides on this blog. You are always welcome to ask for assistance through this blog. I will do what I can to find a location close to you.
