ST. CHARLES – Kane County’s electronics and books recycling events will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Nov. 14 and Dec. 12, before taking a three-month break.

Events are held at the Kane County traffic court building at 540 S Randall Road in St. Charles.

“It takes a lot more equipment and up to 30 workers to operate this event now,” Jennifer Jarland, Kane County’s recycling program coordinator stated in a news release about the upcoming break. “And the extremely cold weather or snowy conditions presents serious issues for this scale of event.”

Because of operational difficulties and health risks associated with operating an outdoor event in extreme weather, there will be no collection events in January, February and March. After the break, events restart on April 9.

At the events, paint will have a $3.50 per gallon-can fee, payable by the resident. All else is free to drop off. Document shredding is limited to four banker boxes per resident, and it is not for businesses to use.

The four permanent electronics recycling drop-offs in the county’s electronics recycling program will remain open for regular hours, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, throughout the winter until further notice.
