The Madison County Planning and Development Department will provide two locations for residents to drop off their political yard signs for recycling.
Recycling containers will be available from Wednesday, Nov. 4, through Sunday, Nov. 8, at SIUE in Parking Lot P-8, located on North Research Drive in Edwardsville and at Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey in the Security Parking Lot at the campus’ north entrance.
Only corrugated plastic yard signs are accepted. The corrugated plastic sign must be separated from the metal base, then each component should be deposited into its respective container.
“In order to ensure a successful program, we’re asking everyone involved to please follow the guidelines by using the containers for yard signs only and by placing their materials in the proper containers,” Andi Yancey, the resource management coordinator with Planning and Development, said.
Yancey said residents planning to use the containers are encouraged to bring not only their signs, but their friends’ and neighbors’ as well.
This collection is part of Madison County Planning and Development’s ongoing efforts to ensure residents have access to responsible waste disposal and recycling options. Funding for this event comes from the county’s landfill tipping fees.
