Kane County Suspends Electronics Recycling Program

Kane County has suspended its free electronics recycling program due to the large volume of televisions being brought to recycling collection events, resulting in overwhelming and unmanageable attendance.  The County is currently working on solutions to the electronics recycling problem.  Please refer to the Kane County Recycles webpage for updates about the program or view a list of Alternative Electronics Recycling Locations.  Questions may be directed to Jennifer Jarland, Kane County Recycling Coordinator at 630-208-3841 or

Batavia, IL, June 30, 2016:  Where does our drinking water come from and what does the City of Batavia Water Department do to ensure it is safe to drink?

John Dillon, Batavia’s Water and Sewer and Superintendent will give a short presentation about Batavia’s Water followed by the tour of the Batavia water treatment plant.  “I will discuss the history of the Batavia Water Supply, where Batavia’s water comes from, how the water is treated and how the water makes it to your faucet,” said John Dillon.

“With recent concerns about the safety of municipal water supplies, we are excited to partner with the Water Department to give citizens an up close look at our treatment facilities and a chance have their questions answered by the superintendent himself,” stated Carolyn Burnham, Batavia Environmental Commission member.

Attendees will be able to tour the treatment facilities and pumping facilities and learn how water is stored and pumped!
