The City of Evanston will host its ninth annual “Evanston Recycles” event on Saturday, July 6, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Evanston Township High School, 1600 Dodge Ave. The free “drive up, drop off” event provides residents an opportunity to recycle and donate a variety of items and securely shred documents.
Community members participating in the event should enter the drop-off line on Church Street west of Dodge Avenue (view map below). Participants are asked to follow the signs to the drop-off area and remain in their cars as City staff unload the items. Participants are asked to not line up before 8 a.m. Electronics recycling and document destruction are open to residents of all Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) communities.
