Is there an additional charge to have your recyclables collected?
Yes and No. Recycling of smaller recyclables like bottles, cans, and boxes is included in all Park Forest residents’ monthly garbage collection fee. The recycling of larger electronic items that need to be picked-up from a resident's home, like a large television, can be done for a fee of $75 by the Village's electronics recycling partner Vintage Tech. Smaller electronic devices can be dropped at Village Hall (look for the large electronics recycling container just to the right after entering Village Hall from the south doors).
