This program was previously paid for by electronic manufacturers, however the state funding formula has not kept pace with the amount recycled, and does not cover the costs to continue the program. Donations have helped fund the program until the end of 2016.
SWALCO will continue to evaluate options to keep the electronic recycling facilities in operation.
Fortunately for Highland Park residents, our agreement with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS)
allows one large electronic waste item to placed curbside on the customer's first pickup of each month at no additional charge. Items over 50 lbs. will incur additional fees. To ensure your electronic recycling items are collected, you must call LRS to schedule your pick-up.
