After the holiday season, string lighting and extension cords can be dropped off at various locations throughout northern Cook County. Garland, live greens, wreaths or other non-recyclables are not accepted in this program. See SWANCC's Residential Holiday Light Recycling Program. Winnetka Public Works offers year-round recycling of holiday lights.

Oxygen tanks used for medical purposes in the home should be returned to the supplier or manufacturer. Check the neck of the tank for an address. Dive tanks can usually be sold back to the dive shop. Before purchasing any compressed gas tanks, ask the supplier about proper disposal methods.

This is a list of Packaging Product Drop-off Centers in the SWANCC area with location, materials collected and phone
number. Please call the respective locations for verification.

All packing peanuts, cardboard and bubble wrap should be clean and acceptable for reuse. Bubble wrap should be free of
tape. Corn starch peanuts are generally NOT accepted at most locations - polystyrene only.

If your municipality does not have a shipping store that accepts recycling, take a look at EPS Industry Alliance’s
website,epspackaging.org, to locate the  closest collection site that accepts plastic peanuts for reuse.

To give away or acquire used cardboard boxes, refer to the website freecardboardboxes.com.
