The state of Illinois now bans certain items from being thrown into a landfill, or your trash can. Because of this, CCA is your local location for computer and electronics recycling. CCA offers free recycling in Logan county and Lincoln, IL for all old computer equipment. The Illinois EPA has prepared a flyer to help educate Illinois residents on the state’s Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act. The flyer describes the new law and contains helpful links. You can download the flyer in PDF format here.
