Ward-Wide Electronics Collection This Saturday

August 19, 2010

Residents who live in Chicago’s 43rd Ward can leave their unwanted electronics near the curb in front of their homes on August 21 to be recycled.

43rd Ward Alderman Vi Daley

Alderman Vi Daley announced that trucks will be driving through the neighborhood on Saturday starting at 8 a.m. picking up equipment.

The program is associated with PC Rebuilders & Recyclers (PCRR), a company that rebuilds old computers and donates them to needy children through its Computers for Schools program. This group keeps computers out of landfills while recycling unusable parts.

Residents who don’t want to leave equipment outside their homes can drop their stuff off between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday, August 21 at the Ward Yard, 1320 W. Concord Place, on Kingsbury at Cortland, just west of Clybourn.

Acceptable electronics include:



*DVD players




*Video equipment

*Cell phones

For more information, visit or call the Ward office at (773) 327-9111 or (312) 744-3071.
