SWALCO Does Not accept electronics at the Gurnee Household Chemical Waste Facility

Beginning January 1, 2012, the Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act landfill ban for certain electronic devices became effective. Electronic items such as televisions, monitors, computers and printers are some of the most common items that are no longer allowed in the regular trash (see our accepted and non-accepted page for a full list of prohibited electronics).
