Changes to Drop-Off Recycling Programs Effective 8-1-14
Effective August 1, 2014, drop-off programs for the recycling of all batteries, mercury thermometers and thermostats, compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, fluorescent tubes and plastic bags will be suspended until further notice due to the upcoming remodeling of the Palatine Village Hall.
The Environmental Health Division will continue with the collection of drugs and sharps only during the remodeling process.
The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) provides alternative drop-off locations for batteries, mercury thermometers and thermostats and compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs at surrounding municipalities. Palatine residents are eligible to participate in these SWANCC programs. For program information and locations, please visit www.swancc.org or contact SWANCC at (847) 724-9205.
Palatine Ace Hardware located at 239 E Northwest Highway also offers programs for the recycling of batteries and compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Please contact Ace Hardware at (847) 358-8100 for program info.
We apologize for any inconvenience due to these changes. For further information, please contact the Environmental Health Division at (847) 359-9090.
