[ARCHIVED] Electronics Recycling and Document Destruction

On Saturday, June 24, 2017, the Village of Niles will host a Document Destruction and Electronics Recycling Event at the Public Services Department from 9 a.m. to noon. Residents from Niles and other SWANCC communities are eligible to participate. Materials will not be accepted from non-SWANCC residents, businesses, schools, or institutions, and IDs will be checked for verification of residency. Participants will be directed to enter the Public Services drop off site off of Franks Avenue.


There is a limit of six file boxes or paper bags, and all plastic, metal clips or binders must be removed. DO NOT bring paper in plastic bags. Plastic is a contaminant, as are photos, slides, and any non-paper items. Workers will remove the paper documents while residents stay their vehicles. Paper is cross-shredded on site and will be recycled at a mill to make new paper products.
