Join ILPSC in 2017!
Please join your fellow stakeholders as we work to improve recycling programs in Illinois by becoming a member! Since inception in 2014, the ILPSC was instrumental in amending the Electronics Products Recycling and Reuse Act by increasing manufacturer goals in 2015 and 2016. In 2016 the ILPSC continued their focus in developing long-term solutions to the Electronics Products Recycling and Reuse Act to help sustain programs in the state. ILPSC is currently in the process of drafting additional electronics legislation to meet long-term goals for the program. As you enter the FY 2017-2018 planning processes please consider allowing for or requesting an ongoing amount (suggested $500-2000) for annual membership with the ILPSC. Please join us!
Best Buy No Longer Able to Accept TVs & Computer Monitors at Illinois Stores
Best Buy has changed its electronics recycling program as of January 31, 2016. Stores in Illinois and Pennsylvania will no longer accept televisions or computer monitors due to state legislation prohibiting retailers from charging consumers fees for electronics recycling. Consumers may continue to recycle other products such as computers, printers, ink cartridges and more in Best Buy stores. See the full story here.
Please contact your local County or municipality for electronics recycling options in your area. Please continue to support the ILPSC’s efforts in amending the electronics legislation so that we can have robust and effective statewide electronics recycling programs!
