Oswego Community Recycling Event

Do you have electronics, Styrofoam, prescription drugs, or other tricky-to-recycle items stockpiled in your house? Celebrate your dedication to the environment by recycling them with the Village of Oswego, for Oswego Community Recycling Day on Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Spring clean your garage, basement, and even your junk drawer and give new life to the things cluttering your home. The Village of Oswego has coordinated with partners throughout the community, including Groot, Fox Metro, the Lions Club and Oswego Presbyterian, to accept the following items for reuse, repurposing, recycling, or safe disposal:
  • Electronics - including all kinds of televisions at no additional charge, monitors, printers, computers, keyboards & mice, fax machines, videocassette recorders, portable music players, video game consoles, small scale servers, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers and digital video disc recorders 
  • Prescription drugs*  
  • Eyeglasses
  • Keys
  • Cell phones
  • Hearing aids
  • Ink cartridges
  • Christmas lights
  • Extension cords
  • Styrofoam (polystyrene #6)**
Electronics recycling is open to Oswego residents only. You must present identification that proves your Oswego address, such as a current drivers license, to drop off electronics at this event.
*This year, they cannot accept EpiPens for recycling.

**For Styrofoam collection, please bag your Styrofoam into two separate bags, one for foam cups and food service containers, and second bag for packaging foam. Please rinse food containers and remove labels, tape and other packaging materials from your packaging foam. Check out this article for examples of what can be collected. Polystyrene must be #6 type to be collected. (Check for the recycling symbol with #6 stamped on it.)

Great event! Would be better if they could use school lots across village to make it more accessible. Maybe HS students to help towards their community service hours. Only downside all the cars idling in the long lines.
