Gilberts Recycling

In the Village of Gilberts, recycling and other environmental efforts are in full swing thanks to numerous local government programs and recycling centers. In fact, we at Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal have two recycling centers in the area for you to choose from. This ensures that whether you live near East End Drive or Center Drive, you have a place where you can have your recyclables processed properly and earn extra funds.

No matter which location you choose to use our services in Gilberts, our recycling center will accommodate all your recycling needs. We accept:

  • Scrap Metal: Aluminum, brass, copper, steel, stainless steel, molybdenum, and more
  • Paper
  • Plastic

In Gilberts, our recycling services also cover End of Life electronics and appliances. We can assure you that we are capable of handling them to prevent any chemical leaks and other accidents that may occur due to the improper management of electronic goods.

Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal is an R2-certified business. This means that we have the facilities to make sure data drives and other types of digital storage devices are properly handled to secure any leftover data they may contain.
