VILLAGE OF ADDISON COMMUNITY RECYCLING EXTRAVAGANZA MAY 2

Allied Waste to Allow Drop Off of Items at Public Works

On Saturday, May 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Allied Waste will sponsor the first-ever Village of Addison Community Recycling Extravaganza at the Public Works Facility at 1491 Jeffrey Drive.

Residents will be allowed to drop off many items that would not be allowed to be put into curbside recycling or to be put in ordinary garbage.

These items will include: batteries (e.g., boat, car, sump pump, utility); scrap metal (i.e. swing sets, lawn furniture, washers, dryers); tattered American flags; adult bicycles and bicycle parts; used motor oil and anti-freeze; eyeglasses; hearing aids; ink jet cartridges; fire extinguishers; electronics.

Some items will not be accepted, including paint, household hazardous waste, refrigerators and air conditioners.

In addition, residents may bring documents to be shredded on site. These documents should be limited to three boxes, and should not include plastic binders. You may choose to view the shredding process.

For more information, or if you have questions, please call the Public Works Environmental Services Division at 630-279-2140.
