Each November the Village hosts a pumpkin recycling event at Town Center. This year we are expanding this event to include electronics recycling and are hosting it at our Water Reclamation Center (245 Kuhn Rd.) on November 4th (8AM-Noon). 

The Village of Carol Stream will be partnering with eWorks, Glenbard North Green Panthers, SCARCEFlood Brothers Disposal, and DuPage County to host the Pumpkin and Electronics recycling event which will be open to residents and non-residents. It is state law that electronics cannot be disposed in a landfill so we are here to help with a recycling event. While most qualifying electronics will be recycled for free, there is a fee for televisions and monitors. 

Under 21 inch screen = $25.00 per unit
21 inch screen and over = $35.00 per unit
Cash or Credit Card accepted- NO Checks
By recycling pumpkins you are helping to reduce the methane released from landfills and returning important nutrients to the soil. Pumpkins for recycling should be free from decorative additions like wax, yarn, and googly eyes. 

If the item you need to recycle is not covered or you need to recycle your items before November, you can check out this handy recycling guide on the DuPage County website and this recycling event calendar.
