The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC), a nonprofit intergovernmental agency, has provided solid waste management services, programs and resource materials to its 23 member communities since 1988. SWANCC’s focus is to reduce the volume and toxicity of solid waste through responsible waste reduction solutions and includes collections for special materials.
Only residents that live in a SWANCC member community are eligible to participate in the Agency’s programs.
SWANCC provides member residents with a variety of waste reduction and recycling services, programs and resource materials. These include collections for special materials that cannot go into the curbside recycling cart or should not go into the garbage due to toxicity or recoverability, such as: computer and electronics, prescription drugs and sharps, compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, mercury thermometers, holiday lights and batteries.
