Fremont Township Recycle-O-Rama August 24
Our annual Recycle-O-Rama is Saturday, August 24, 2019. Just a few reminders!!!

Three bankers boxes of paper for shredding will be accepted until the truck is full. This is for documents only. Please don't bring junk mail and expired coupons. You must make sure there are no binders, clips,or paperclips because they jam the truck. We won’t be able to take your shredding if you haven’t removed them. Our goal is to move people through as quickly as possible so we can not allow you to remove them here.

The event is at the Fremont Township Complex. Enter off of Erhart Road at our highway department at 22376 W Erhart..

The yarn we collect is made into baby blankets and hats and scarves that go to people in need.

This year we have added dog collars and leashes that will go to local rescues and also musical instruments that will go to the Jack Benny Center in Waukegan.
