America Recycles Day 2018 Update

Due to changes in certain recycling systems in Illinois, some of our historically successful recycling programs that have taken part in America Recycles Day are no longer practical to implement in the same way. These changes have imposed local limitations that will affect our ability to continue these events moving forward. As a result, we have come to the unfortunate decision to discontinue fall America Recycles Day and spring MEGA Recycling events. We sincerely thank our recycling partners for their assistance over the years and their ongoing dedication to providing these services to our community.

Please be on the lookout in November as we continue to highlight our community partners who provide these recycling services. Remember that items previously collected at these events may be dropped off year round at the appropriate locations. If you have questions regarding recycling options in McLean County, please visit or download the RecycleCoach app. For additional questions, you may contact the Ecology Action Center at 309-454-3169. Please note that this does not include Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events which will continue under the McLean County HHW Fund. Our next anticipated HHW event will likely be in Fall 2019. For more information check out
