Many common household items can be recycled


Have some outdated items piled up in your home?

Start the new year out right by letting Elgin Recycling help you declutter.

The company accepts a wide range of materials at its recycling facilities, including common household items such as pots and pans, toaster ovens, aluminum window frames, and stainless steel sinks.

By taking that unwanted clutter to one of Elgin Recycling’s several full-service scrap metal facilities rather than throwing it in the trash, you can ensure those items will not simply be added to landfills.

The company also accepts irons and ironing boards, eating utensils, small and large appliances, and metal shelving, as well as fixtures such as screens and screen doors, downspouts, aluminum fencing, electric extension cords, door hinges and handles, faucets, and more.

And Elgin Recycling is committed to giving its clients the best prices and service as well as recycling these items in the most environmentally-ethical manner.

Just bring in your items and let Elgin Recycling staff unload your car, grade your material, weigh your scrap, and pay you cash.

A full list of accepted items is located on the Elgin Recycling website. Facilities can be found in Elgin, Elk Grove Township, Crystal Lake and Gilberts.

Recycling is important in conserving natural resources and maintaining environmental sustainability.

For instance, did you know that recycling just one aluminum can save enough energy to keep a 100-watt bulb burning for almost four hours or provides enough energy to power a television for three hours?

Make the effort to be more green in 2019 by bringing your recyclable goods to an experienced and reliable company such as Elgin Recycling. By doing so, you can help save valuable landfill space and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
