    Per this state regulation, solid waste haulers are not allowed to collect and/or dispose of any of the banned electronics as solid waste.  Residents and businesses are thereby prohibited from placing any of the banned electronic components in a waste collection container that include a refuse can, commercial dumpster and recycling toter.  The Village has established free electronics recycling drop off options for both homeowners as well as residents living in rental communities with the following local State-licensed electronics recyclers:
