Chicago Recycling

Here at Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal, we believe that whether you're a homeowner or a big company, we are all responsible for taking care of the planet. This is why we offer the city of Chicago recycling services that provide a way for everyone to properly dispose of waste without adding to the trash in landfills.

When we talk about recycling and preserving the environment, trash segregation and reusing items usually come to mind. However, it's important to note that there's so much more we can do to further our green efforts each day. For instance, some wastes such as scrap metal, used electronics, and industrial quantities of paper and plastic can be managed by those who have the equipment to process them. To get these items from your home or company to the manufacturers that need them, simply take them to our Chicago recycling centers or schedule a pick-up, and we'll handle the rest.

Electronic recycling presents a lot of benefits for both the environment and the companies that receive its results. The electronic scrap, or E-scrap, you bring in can be used by a wide variety of manufacturers as an alternative source of materials. This can decrease their need to mine and extract the resources from nature through highly destructive methods.

In Chicago, electronics recycling is only one of several services we offer. We cater to residential recyclers, as well as businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations. We are also an R2 certified recycling service. This means that we can ensure data security when recycling E-scrap such as hard drives and other data storage devices using our High Energy Pulse Degausser.

Aside from allowing you to drop off your recyclables at our facilities, we can also do pickups especially for industrial accounts or those recycling larger loads. Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal can provide roll-off boxes, box trucks with lift gates, van trailers, gondolas, flatbeds, gaylords, and dump hoppers. Call us to learn more about our pickup service and current scrap prices.
