2019 Recycling Information

The Environmental Defenders is excited to announce that in 2019 we will be joining the McHenry County Department of Health at their four one-day recycling events to collect Styrofoam, fluorescent tubes and bulbs, and clothing and textiles.  Those events will take place from 8:00 AM to Noon on April 13 at the City of Harvard, 201 W. Diggins Street; May 18 at the County Building, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock; September 7 at Grafton Township, 10109 Vine Street, Huntley; and October 19 at McHenry County College, 8900 US Highway 14, Crystal Lake.  We will require a donation of $.50 for each 4-ft. tube and bulb and $1.00 for each tube exceeding 4 feet.  We will also hold our annual drive at the Earth Day event on April 20, 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at the McHenry County Conservation District’s Prairieview Education Center, 2112 Behan Road, Crystal Lake, where we will collect Styrofoam, fluorescent tubes and bulbs, and clothing and textiles. Elgin Recycling will be collecting the CED at the event and will charge the collection fees for the TVs and Monitors.
