Recycling Extravaganza Nov. 7

The Village of Addison, along with Republic Services of Melrose Park, is pleased to announce there will be a one-day community recycling event on Saturday, Nov. 7.  The event will be held in the north parking lot of Addison Trail High School, 213 N. Lombard Road, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event is for Addison residents only (proof of residency required) and will include the acceptance of all Household Hazardous Wastes, electronics, document shredding, batteries, paint, light bulbs, gasoline and motor oil, fire extinguishers, and much more.  Check our recycling page here for more information on acceptable items and allowable quantities. 

There is no charge for the event, however, there are limits on televisions (2 per car), document shredding (3 boxes), and Household Hazardous Waste (50 pounds).

In addition, the Addison VFW will be on site to accept American Flags and representatives from SCARCE will be on hand taking books, records, musical instruments, keys, hearing aids, and eyeglasses.

In order to maintain safety at the event during the Covid-19 outbreak, residents will not be allowed to exit their vehicles.  This is a drive-thru event only.  Workers and volunteers wearing proper PPE will empty the contents of your vehicles, so please have all items sorted and readily accessible.

Residents are encouraged to limit the amount of water based (latex) paint as much as possible by “drying out” the containers.  This can be done by simply opening the can for a few days for smaller amounts, or adding kitty litter or other drying agents.  If there is no “free liquid” remaining in the can, it can be placed in your regular trash.
