The City of Chicago Recycle Program
Household Chemicals & Computer Recycling Facility Overview:
You can dispose of your household chemicals responsibly and recycle your old computers and electronic devices by dropping them off at the City’s permanent Household Chemicals & Computer Recycling Facility at 1150 N. North Branch Street (two blocks east of the Kennedy Expressway at Division Street). Computers and other electronic devices can also now be deposited for recycling in a designated collection box in the J/K garage located near the James House garage entrance door. Some working items may be donated for reuse, rather than recycled. Check the website Earth911.com for details.
Beginning January 1st, 2012 it became illegal for individuals to dispose of unwanted electronics in their regular trash. Discarded electronics, including computers, monitors, electronic keyboards, scanners, fax machines and many other electronic devices must now be taken to a registered recycler for proper management. Electronic devices deposited in the J/K collection box are properly dismantled and processed by a registered recycler.
The Household Chemical and Computer Recycling Facility accepts a range of items, including household cleaners, oil-based paints, solvents, cell phones, compact fluorescent light bulbs, computers and related equipment to name a few. It does NOT accept business/commercial sector wastes, explosives, fireworks or latex paint. Please review the full list of items in both categories before you visit.
The facility is open for drop-offs on the following days only:
Tuesdays (7 am – 12 pm)
Thursdays (2 pm- 7 pm)
The first Saturday of every month (8 am – 3 pm)
If a holiday falls on any of the above drop-off days, the facility will not be open.
During business hours, an attendant is outside, ready to help unload your vehicle and accept your materials. Materials should not be left outside the facility unattended. Therefore, please do not drop off any items outside of scheduled business hours.
