Here at Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal, we are proud to do our part in helping businesses and communities in the Chicagoland area recycle their scrap metal, electronics, plastic, and paper. The Mount Prospect Public Works Department joined Elgin Recycling’s Holiday light recycling program in 2011 and since has recycled nearly 6,000 pounds of holiday lights. For residents of Mount Prospect, our recycling center based in Elk Grove can provide for most of their recycling needs.
Trash segregation has an important role to play in preserving the environment, and much more can be done to contribute to reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills and dumpsites. Every year, homes and businesses produce a lot of waste that is sent directly for disposal, and the value of recycling these materials is often overlooked.
Materials that have a high recycling value are electronics, paper, plastic, and scrap metal. For Mount Prospect residents and businesses, our nearby Elk Grove recycling center is fully equipped to handle all of their needs.
The process of collecting, sorting, and recycling scrap metal, used electronics, and industrial quantities of paper and plastic can be complex. Not all recycling centers are fully equipped to process these waste materials properly. At Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal, you can be assured that we take our responsibility to the environment seriously, and will recycle and dispose of your waste in accordance with state law.
Illinois law has special provisions concerning the disposal of electronic waste. For one, electronics must be wiped clean of personal data before they are thrown away. To ensure proper recycling in Mount Prospect, our electronics recycling facilities are R2 certified and fully equipped to erase all kinds of electronic data from a variety of equipment.
Aside from our Elk Grove Village recycling center, we also have facilities located in Elgin, Palatine, Crystal Lake, and Gilberts. Wherever you are located in the Chicagoland area, we have your needs covered.

Not only will you be able to do your part in saving the environment, but you can also earn some extra income by bringing in your scrap.
