For residents and businesses in Arlington Heights, recycling and going green is not a new concept. The Environmental Commission has its own eco-advisory group, established in 1971, and is one of the first communities to begin residential and business recycling programs. Arlington Heights is a leader in improving environmental health and encouraging eco-awareness.
Based on the Village of Arlington Heights' Living Green Initiatives, recycling is one of the easiest measures homeowners and business owners can take to divert large amounts of waste from landfills. In fact, the local government already provides the people of the village a way to recycle by having its own recyclable pickup system and recycling containers at the Village Hall.
In Arlington Heights, electronics recycling is not covered by its green initiatives since many computers and mobile phones contain toxic substances that their current recycling processes can't handle. Because of this, it is encouraged that a local recycler is sought out to handle unwanted electronics.
We at Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal are happy to help eliminate and put to good use both your unwanted electronics and scrap metal in Arlington Heights. Our recycling center in Arlington Heights can do metal recycling and handle all sorts of electronics without risking chemical leakage and other disastrous incidents.
