Lake Zurich Recycling

As a home or business owner in the village of Lake Zurich, recycling is one of the best ways you can both contribute to the community's environmental efforts and earn extra funds. We at Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal are glad that we can help you out with such a noble and profitable endeavor as we understand how much our planet needs extra attention, and that earning some savings is always a welcome bonus.

We accept various scrap metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel, stainless steel, and molybdenum; paper waste; as well as plastic recyclables.

In Lake Zurich, our recycling services cover unwanted and out of order electronics and appliances as well. Our facilities are equipped to handle End of Life electronics and can make sure that proper procedures are followed to prevent chemical leaks and other unwanted incidents caused by improper management of such goods.

We are also proud to say that Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal is R2 certified. Elgin Recycling filters all E-scrap from our four recycling centers through our R2 certified warehouse ensuring that your electronics are handled safely and securely.This means that we don’t only prioritize safety but also data security. Computer hard drives, portable data devices, and other digital data items go through the necessary procedures to ensure that whatever they contain aren’t extracted or saved elsewhere – your personal or confidential business data will be eliminated together with the hardware.
