Military members can recycle TVs, monitors at discounted rate
For those who have served the country, Elgin Recycling wants to serve you.
That’s why the company is running a special discount on e-waste recycling fees at each of its four locations in honor of the upcoming Veterans Day holiday.
From Monday, Nov. 5 through Saturday, Nov. 17, past and present military personnel who bring in their old or unwanted televisions and computer monitors can receive a $15 discount on their recycling fee.
That special pricing means televisions and monitors under 21 inches, which are usually $25 to recycle, will be $10, while those 21 inches and above, regularly $35, will be $20. LCD monitors, usually $15, will be free to recycle.
A service identification or DD 214 form is required for the recycling discount. Only one discount per person.
To determine size and recycling fee on your item, measure the screen diagonally from inside corner to inside corner. Of note: the special discount does not apply to wood console and rear projection TVs.
Elgin Recycling is committed to providing the Chicagoland area with a greener alternative for disposing of electronics. Those individuals who choose to take their e-waste to an Elgin Recycling facility rather than throw it in the trash bin help conserve the Earth’s natural resources and avoid air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. And with growing technological advancements now more than ever there is a need for an outlet to recycle end of life electronics.
If you are a past or present service member looking to declutter, take advantage of Elgin Recycling’s Veterans Day special discount on televisions and computer monitor recycling fees.
By doing so, you can make a positive impact on your home and the planet.
