As of January 2012, certain electronic items -- mainly computer monitors and televisions -- are banned from Illinois landfills.

To assist residents with collecting old electronics and to ensure environmentally safe recycling of these materials, the village of Hoffman Estates, in cooperation with the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County, resumed its weekly drop-off collection program Monday, April 1.

This free program is for Hoffman Estates residents only, and will last through November.

Village residents can drop off electronics at the village hall, 1900 Hassell Road, from 10 a.m.-noon on Mondays only. Do not drop off electronics other than during posted dates and times.

Under the "Electronics Products Recycling and Reuse Act" (SB2313), only a specific list of acceptable items will be allowed to be dropped off, including computers (PCs and laptops) and computer components (monitors, keyboards, mouse devices, drives, etc.), DVD players, fax machines, MP3 players, printers, scanners, TVs, VHS players, and video game consoles.

Visit www.swancc.org for a full list of acceptable items.
