Are electronic items collected?

No; effective January 1, 2012, electronics can no longer be collected with residential waste. The State of Illinois has enacted legislation that bans most electronics from being put in Illinois landfills. Banned electronic items include: computers, televisions, DVD and VHS players, mobile phones, stereo equipment, printers, video game consoles, and MP3 players.

The Village hosts an annual Green Day Event in May to collect electronics for free for Itasca residents. Keep an eye on the Village's website and newsletter for date and time. 

Residents may also visit the website for the DuPage County Environmental Division to find information about waste, recycling, and energy efficiency programs in the area.
