New Kane County Recycles Green Guide due out next month

The new 2014-2015 Kane County Recycles Green Guide will be coming out in April in celebration of Earth Day, April 22nd.

This guide is loaded with information on everything you can recycle in Kane County and when and where.

There are some new programs this year including free carpet recycling and document shredding.

The guide will not be distributed in the newspapers this year. Most people source recycling information online these days, as it conserves paper and the information is more current.

Of course, many still like to have a paper copy to refer to, so plenty will be printed.

Here are the ways to obtain a copy or copies of the Kane County Recycles Green Guide:

Sign up online for a downloadable PDF copy of the Green Guide at and print your own copy.

Pick up a copy at local Village, Township, or City Halls; at City and Village Public Works Buildings; at your local Library; or at Kane County Government Center, Building A, 1st floor, Recycling Office. The guide will be available after April 18th.

Call Jennifer Jarland, Kane County Recycling Coordinator, at (630) 208-3841 or email to get on the mailing list to receive a copy (or a number of copies) each year in April, mailed directly to your home or business.

Copies will be handed out at the monthly Electronics Collection events, on the second Saturday of each month, from 8 a.m. to noon, at 540 S Randall Rd., St. Charles.
