This event will take place rain or shine.
The electronic recycling collection is open to residents of Stephenson County only. There will be a $20 CASH charge (correct change only accepted) per vehicle and only seven (7) items total are allowed per vehicle. Of those seven items, only the following items can be accepted:

Items not on the list will not be accepted. This is an IEPA approved event and we must follow their guidelines to be in compliance.
Volunteers are still needed to help. If interested, please call Freeport City Hall at 815-235-8208 for further information.
We encourage Stephenson County residents to participate. Recycling conserves our natural resources, eliminates waste in landfills and reduces harm to the environment.
