Board approves more electronics recycling sites
New Lenox Township, village of Peotone to collect electronics twice a month
"Electronic recycling is an issue for residents in my district who have been asking for help in finding a solution, and I'm pleased we now have a real option for them again," said board member Ray Tuminello (R-New Lenox). "Quite frankly, it's a shame there are not more places to dispose of these types of products in a safe and environmentally friendly way. For many years, it was a tough sell to get people to recycle anything, and now many are mindful of what they send to landfills but are faced with limited recycling options for electronics."
Residents from any Will County community can make use of the three collection sites. Lockport's site is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 6am to 11am. The village of Peotone's site is open the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 5pm to 7pm at the police department. New Lenox Township's site is open the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 5pm to 7pm at the township office.
