This recycling guide is published as a service to Springfield
residents and is designed to provide information only. This guide
does not address business waste, and inclusion in this guide is not
an endorsement of any business or service. An attempt was made
to include those businesses or organizations that reuse or recycle
items typically generated by residents at home. Most businesses
are located in or near Springfield; however, some are located
outside Illinois.

Publication and distribution of this guide is funded by the City of
Springfield, Division of Waste and Recycling.

                                Preface
Each year, Americans generate about 251 million tons of trash
- nearly one ton of trash per person per year! Each of us generates
around 5 pounds of waste every day.1 In 2005 in Illinois, landfills
accepted 16.6 million gate tons of solid waste. The majority of
waste generated in Illinois is discarded in landfills within our state
borders.2

Much of this trash can either be reused or recycled. Using the
options listed in this guide may help to: conserve landfill space
and natural resources, protect wildlife habitats, save energy
and decrease the amount of waste going in to our landfills. This
guide provides practical and easy solutions for either donating,
reusing, selling or recycling your typical, and potentially hazardous,
household waste.

Springfield’s recycling and waste reduction programs will succeed
with the support of its residents. Room to Room can help build that
support by teaching residents how to reduce, reuse and recycle
both residential AND hazardous wastes.

             How to Use This Guide
This guide focuses on two types of household generated waste:
municipal waste and household hazardous waste (HHW). Municipal
waste includes materials generated at home such as food, packaging,
recyclables, landscape waste, construction or demolition debris,
appliances, tires, HHW, and household items. We generally refer to it
as garbage or trash.

HHW is waste found in a kitchen, bathroom, basement, or garage that
is ignitable, corrosive, reactive, or toxic, such as paint products, motor
oil, glues, cleansers, pool chemicals, gasoline, and pesticides.

There are four basic ways to handle the waste you generate: reuse,
recycle, compost, or landfill. A resident can decrease the amount
or volume of trash generated in the first place by a method called
waste reduction. A resident can also decrease the amount of garbage
discarded through repeated use of a material or product, called reuse.

This guide focuses on reuse and/or recycling options within the City
of Springfield for each of the materials listed. In addition, if there
is a recommended way of handling a waste item or type of HHW, this
information is provided. Suggested methods for handling HHW items
are addressed on page 12.
Reuse centers are locations that will accept such things as used
clothing, furniture, household items, or toys for resale. Examples are
resale, thrift, or consignment shops, which are sometimes associated
with a homeless, women’s, or animal shelter, or other non-profit
organization.
Recycling centers are locations that will accept recyclables such as
aluminum cans, white and mixed paper,
chipboard, cardboard, newspapers, plastic        Ideas for reducing
bottles, and steel (tin) cans.                    waste by reusing

  Recycling - Curbside Collection/Garbage Service
Curbside recycling is available at no additional cost for single
family – triplex (3 unit) residences that pay for garbage can pickup
(it is not available with dumpster service).

      If you simply cannot reuse, donate, sell, recycle or use up
      an item or material generated in your home, place it in the
      garbage (unless it is banned from landfills-see page 11)
Springfield requires every residence/household to have waste
collection service through a licensed, professional waste hauler.
For details, contact one of the licensed haulers listed below.

         After Christmas, don’t just throw out the big
       boxes from new appliances or electronics. Cut up
      the boxes so people don’t know what new product
        you have in the house. Better yet, take them to
                 the drop-off recycling center.

Website http://groups.yahoo.com/group/freecyclespfldil.
The purpose of Freecycle is to reduce waste by connecting
individuals who are throwing away goods with others who can use
them. The Springfield, IL website is part of the international
Freecycle organization (www.freecycle.org). Anyone with access
to a computer can log on to the site and post an item they can
no longer use but could be used by someone else. Every material
listing must be free, legal and appropriate for all ages.

            Household Hazardous Waste
       Things to consider when handling and contemplating disposal of
       household hazardous waste (HHW), such as paint products, motor
       oil, pesticides, poisons, automotive fluids, lawn chemicals, are:
• read labels before purchasing* and follow directions;
• only buy the amount you will actually need for the project;
• use (up) the product for its intended purpose only;
• keep product in its original container and secure lid tightly;
• keep in cool, dry places;
• keep HHW products out of reach of children and pets;
• keep incompatible chemical products separated; and
• periodically check product container(s) for deterioration.

If you still have waste to dispose after applying these options, then try
one of the following:
• see if your waste could be someone else’s resource (neighbors, family,
  homeless shelters, daycare centers, animal shelters, art departments,
  drama clubs, boy/girl scouts);
• if the original container is leaking, enclose it in a larger, leak-proof
  container (bucket) that is labeled properly; and
• store the waste until you are able to take it to an IEPA-sponsored
  HHW collection. Events are held in spring and fall at varying locations
  throughout Illinois. Call 217-785-8604 or visit website www.epa.state.
  il.us/land for current list of upcoming events.
