Electronic Waste Recycling and Disposal: LRS provides collection, recycling and proper disposal of electronics that are banned from landfills for Village of Lisle residents.  Electronic waste (E-Waste) is collected once a month, on the first Wednesday of every month. The Village still provides monthly electronics recycling services on the third Saturday of each month. More information can be found here.  https://www.villageoflisle.org/603/Electronics-Recycling

What is considered E-Waste?  E-Waste is considered covered electronic devices (CED) by 415 ILCS 150, the Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act.  E-Waste includes (but is not limited to) computers, computer monitors, televisions, printers, keyboards, fax machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, computer mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers.

Will there be a charge for E-Waste Curbside Collection? The LRS E-Waste curbside collection program is a sticker-based program.  The same sticker that is used for garbage and yard waste is also used for E-Waste.  As the cost for handling the E-Waste varies depending on the item, there are a different number of stickers required depending on how much E-Waste is placed at the curb.

How many stickers are required for E-Waste?

  • 1 (One) Sticker – One (1) Small, E-Waste Item (such as a computer mouse or digital disc player)
  • 5 (Five) Stickers – One (1) brown paper bag (small bundle) of E-Waste items (such as a keyboard, video cassette recorder or computer mouse)
  • 10 (Ten) Stickers – One (1) TV or computer monitor

How will the collection driver know I have placed E-Waste out for collection?Please keep E-Waste separated from your regular garbage, recycling or yard –waste. If you have one item, you should place it inside a clear plastic bag or paper bag clearly marked, “E-WASTE”.  TV’s and monitors should be placed on the opposite side of the driveway or at least 5’ away from regular garbage, recycling or yard waste carts.
