Recycling Avenue was launched in 2007 by two physically challenged young adults, Greg Campone & PJ Flaherty, who wanted to work and make a difference is an organization which helps to provide job opportunities for the physically challenged.
Avenues believed in their idea and provided space to put their into action. Today, dozens of recycling bins are located in businesses and communities throughout Chicagoland, including Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Buffalo Grove, and Main Township. Our service is FREE and we do all of the pick-ups.
Did You Know?
Just the chemicals in one cell phone can pollute up to 158,000 gallons of water. You can help keep the environment clean by donating items that daily fill our landfills with toxins. With your help we can make gains on the three tenets of recycling: reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Items We Accept
We accept a wide range of electronics including but not limited to cell phones, laptops, inkjet cartridges, MP3 players, cameras,GPS devices, and radar detectors at any of our drop-off locations. Items that can be sold will be put up for auction on eBay and all proceeds will go towards keeping Avenues to Independence up and running. We are currently buying cell phones and Apple products. Please contact Recycling Avenue with the model number, make, and condition the item and we will respond with an offer.
If you would like to run a recycling campaign please contact us today! We will provide the bins, materials, and handle all pick-ups and drop-offs to make the operation as easy as possible for you.
