GURNEE – State Representative Sheri Jesiel (R-Winthrop Harbor) is inviting residents of the 61st District to join her for her first annual recycling fair to be held at Viking Middle School in Gurnee. The event will offer recycling and donation for a number of items ranging from electronics to clothing.
“This event is a great opportunity for residents to properly dispose of items like old electronics or flags that often sit around collecting dust because nobody knows the right place to recycle them,” said Jesiel. “In addition, it will be a great opportunity to help those in need with donations of clothing or furniture to Goodwill. I hope residents will take advantage of this occasion to clear-out their closet in a responsible and helpful way.”
The event will feature electronic recycling, clothing donation, used U.S. Flag collection, battery recycling (all but car batteries), and also keys, eyeglasses, and hearing aids recycling. For a comprehensive list of recyclable items, please visit www.sherijesiel.com. Collecting vendors include, American Legion Post 771, the Goodwill Store, the Gurnee Lions Club, and Vintage Tech Recyclers.
