On July 8, more than 900 vehicles took advantage of the seventh annual “Evanston Recycles” event at Evanston Township High School to recycle and donate a wide range of items. This year’s event expanded the items permitted, adding bicycles, flags, keys, and more. 746 vehicles shredded documents and
724 vehicles recycled electronics.

Many local businesses and organizations profited from the items donated. The Evanston Recyclery received 21 bikes and Random Acts of Flowers received about 200 vases. American Legion collected roughly 25-30 flags and Goodwill received some
200 donation tickets. The Lions Club received 780 keys, 210 glasses, 70 glasses, 75 cell phones, and 33 ink cartridges.

The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) received 14,160 pounds of paper and 56,422 pounds of electronics. The City of Evanston collected 1,775 pounds of batteries, 665 gallons of plastic film, 480 fluorescent bulbs, and 65 gallons of reusable bags. 110 gallons of hazardous waste was transferred to NorthShore University HealthSystem.
