The Village of Westmont, in conjunction with eWorks, Inc. and DuPage County, has scheduled special recycling collection events for Saturday, August 20 and Saturday, December 3. The events will run from 8:00 a.m. to Noon. The location for the event will be the new Westmont Public Works facility at 155 E. Burlington Avenue.
“Our special electronics and more recycling event in April was a huge success,” said Westmont Communications Director and Environmental Improvement Committee Liaison Larry McIntyre. “We want to thank our recycling vendor eWorks and everyone involved to help make this a successful event. The feedback has been very positive, so we are scheduling two more recycling events for later in the year.”
Following is a list of some of the items that will be collected at these events. Please note that additional items may be added to the collection list as we get closer to the event date.
NOTE - This event is open to all DuPage County citizens. No commercial drop-offs will be permitted.
Participants will enter the Westmont Public Works property at 155 E. Burlington Avenue through the east gate near the intersection of East Burlington Avenue and North Wilmette Avenue. Staff and volunteers will assist recycling participants through the process and motorists have the option of staying in their vehicles. Once recyclable items have been collected, participants will exit the property through the west gate and then return to East Burlington Avenue near Cass Avenue.
