We thank the Village of Algonquin for partnering with us and also Algonquin Township Highway Department for reopening of that site at 3702 Highway 14 in Crystal Lake (open Mon-Fri., 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) We encourage the public to reduce Styrofoam use and to recycle what clean Styrofoam they do have by dropping it off at our two locations or at our monthly recycling drives. Other locations will be opening by end of year. Thank you to U-Haul, Chicago Logistic Service and Dart Company for their partnership in helping to keep Styrofoam out of landfills and out of our environment.
