Yes, we accept and process all smoke detectors onsite for recycling in Elburn.

Recycling smoke detectors is important because it ensures the safe disposal of radioactive materials they may contain, prevents hazardous substances from entering the environment, and allows for the recovery and reuse of valuable materials like plastics and metals. This process supports environmental sustainability and public health by managing potentially harmful components responsibly.

To recycle smoke detectors, we partner with Quincy Recycling.
