The Downers Grove Township Highway Department announced last week that it has canceled its monthly electronics recycling program.
Held the third Saturday of every month, the event allowed residents of Downers Grove Township to drop off unwanted electronics at the highway garage, 318 E. Quincy St., Westmont.
Highway Commissioner Lawrence Anderson said funding issues led to the program’s cancellation.
“Our electronic recycling program has been suspended at this time due to increase in costs,” Anderson said in a statement.
In a separate release, the village of Westmont said it will work with DuPage County and other entities to identify or establish an electronics recycling program for its residents.
