What Our Customers Have to Say...

"Elgin Recycling has always been very responsive to our needs. A joy to work with." John S. Customer Since 2007 Chicago ,IL

Residential Recycling

Elgin Recycling is here to help our residential customers keep the Earth green. There are so many materials that we use in our daily lives, but after their usefulness to us is done, such as the empty can of pop or the old computer sitting in the garage, each and every item needs to find another home. Some of the items residents frequently bring in besides aluminum cans are listed below. We are committed to giving you the best price and the best service as well as recycling these items in the most environmentally ethical manner. We have friendly staff that will unload your car, grade your material, weigh your scrap, and pay you cash. If you ever have a question, look for the guys in the red hard hats. These managers are there to make your recycling experience a positive one. For information on each of our locations go to the Recycling Centers section on our website.
