EverLights Is Drop-off Site for 10th Ward Residents
CHICAGO, Illinois – To make it easier for Chicago’s 10th Ward residents to go green, EverLights is now serving as a drop-off site for old computers, monitors, printers, and TVs.
Located at 9901 S. Torrence Avenue, EverLights will accept the hazardous waste during regular business hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Further information can be obtained by calling 1-773-734-9873.
“We wanted to make it easier for community residents to safely dispose of their hazardous waste,” says Kelly Aaron, EverLights founder and president. “All items dropped off will be de-manufactured and recycled in the U.S.”
EverLights, a certified WBE/SBE company, provides attentive, personalized recycling services to a wide array of companies including University of Chicago, Millennium Park, John Hancock Center and the State of Illinois. Among the items it accepts for recycling are fluorescent bulbs, HID lamps, PCB and non-PCB ballasts, hazardous waste, batteries, and computers.
“Proper disposal is not only the right thing to do but it’s the law,” says Aaron. “Recyclable material must be properly packaged and shipped to a qualified recycling facility. Our job is to make that happen.”
