The next quarterly recycling event for Montgomery residents will be held on Saturday, January 18th, from 8 am to 1 pm at the Public Works facility at 891 Knell Road in Montgomery.
During the event, Montgomery residents who participate in the Village’s trash contract with DC Recycling can drop off electronics (anything electrical that plugs in, including TV’s of all types, computer monitors, fans, etc.), rechargeable or lead acid batteries, and metal. Also accepted will be household hazardous waste, including pesticides, flammables (oil-based paint, paint thinner, gas and oil), caustic cleaners, toxics (such as pool chemicals and weed killer), CFL bulbs, and propane tanks 20 lbs. or less.
These quarterly events are hosted by DC Recycling for its residential customers in the Village of Montgomery only, and do not include businesses, unincorporated areas or apartment buildings because those are not part of the DC Recycling contract. There is no fee to drop off any of these items; however, a photo ID will be required to show residency.
Please note that this recycling event will not accept prescription drugs, latex paint, appliances, regular light bulbs, regular alkaline household batteries, or tires. More complete information may be found on the Village’s website at www.montgomeryil.org.
Please call (630) 896-8080 ext. 9003 with any questions.
