Other Recycling Resources
Orland Township frequently receives inquiries from residents concerning how and/or where they can dispose of items such as compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, batteries, or oil-based paint. Our department always tries to help residents find a proper disposal site and we would like to share an online recycling directory we have found to be useful and easy to use: earth911.com.
At that site, you will find a list of items commonly recycled. Simply click on an item and enter your zip code and the closest recycling location(s) will appear on the screen. If an item you would like to dispose of is not listed, you can enter the item in the designated box along with your zip code and the closest location(s) for recycling that item will appear.
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) also provides useful information as well as collection sites for household hazardous waste. Please visit epa.illinois.gov for more information.
