New 41st Ward recycling location, electronics collection announced

No, we don't yet have blue carts.  But 41st Ward Ald. Mary O'Connor has announced a new drop-off recycling location for cans, glass, papers and plastics at the old 41st Ward yard, 6453 W. Higgins.

There are two other drop-off locations in the 41st Ward, at Chevalier Woods, 5530 N. East River Road, and the (almost always overflowing) location at Milwaukee and Devon. If you're in another part of the City, click here to see a map of other City drop-off locations.

On April 6, from 9:00 to noon, the 41st Ward will conduct its annual Electronics Recycling Day. This year, the event will be held at Immaculate Conception School, 7263 W. Talcott. In addition to electronics, clothing will be collected (with proceeds going to the Epilepsy Foundation), and aluminum cans (with proceeds going to IC School). Paper shredding will be offered by AT&T -- and folks can also drop off their old newspapers in the collection bins now relocated to the same west parking lot of the school where the April 6 drive will take place.

For those who like to plan ahead, Chicago's citywide Clean and Green Volunteer Clean-Up will take place April 20. Registration closes April 12 (click on the link for more information).
