County to Hold Electronics Collection Saturday


The DeKalb County Health Department Solid Waste and Recycling Program will be hosting a free electronics collection this Saturday. The events will be held at the DeKalb Airport on  October 28 from 9:00a.m. until 1:00p.m. The DeKalb Airport is located at 3232 Pleasant Street in DeKalb, IL 60115. Residents will enter Pleasant Street from Peace Road and will be directed to the entrance of the event. At this point, this is the last scheduled free collection event so everyone is anticipating they will receive a large volume of electronics, so you’ll want to get in line early.

To avoid long lines, the group strongly encourages residents of Sycamore, Genoa and Kirkland to use the “At Your Door Program” provided by Waste Management (1-800- 449-7587).
