DEFENDERS’ RECYCLING DRIVE IN WOODSTOCK October 12
Recycling Drive accepts fluorescent tubes, electronics, Styrofoam™, more!
WOODSTOCK - On Saturday, October 12th, the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County will conduct a recycling collection for fluorescent tubes, Styrofoam™, electronics, and batteries from 9 a.m. until noon at the Farm Bureau parking lot, 1102 McConnell Road, in Woodstock. They continue to collect certain items which are not usually accepted by curbside programs, and which would be harmful to the environment if put in a landfill.
The Defenders’ Recycling Drive accepts household batteries, car batteries, lithium and button batteries. The Defenders also collect fluorescent tubes, clean Styrofoam™, VHS & Cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs, packing peanuts and re-usable, unpopped bubble wrap. A donation is requested for fluorescent bulbs and batteries that are brought in to offset the costs involved in processing these items.
Electronics, such as computers, phones, printers, clean microwaves, and electronic toys, are accepted. TVs and computer monitors will be accepted for a donation of $10-$35. Become a new member of the Defenders at the recycling drive, at the Basic or higher level, and get two coupons to recycle a television or monitor for FREE!
The Defenders hold a recycling drive on the second Saturday of each month, alternating between McHenry in odd-numbered months andWoodstock in even-numbered months. People may drive up and drop off their recyclables with Defenders’ volunteers, who help to unload and sort the materials.
