GALENA–Due to the holiday calendar, the electronics recycling dates for the town of Galena are different for November and December. Instead of the traditional collection on the last Friday of the month, mark these dates on the calendar: Friday November 18, Friday January 7, 2022; and Friday, January 27.
Recycle old televisions and computer monitors on designated dates from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Galena Town Hall parking lot. The cost of recycling is $25 per TV or monitor. There is no charge for small electronics, including Christmas lights. Plan to bring help to unload large items.
Used batteries and compact fluorescent bulbs are always accepted at the town hall. Unwanted or expired medications can be dropped off year-round at the Galena Police Department, 311 N. Bench St. There is no charge for batteries, ampoules, or medication disposal.
The city conducts a monthly collection as a courtesy for residents. Items are brought to T&T Iron & Metals at 5158 Barge Terminal Road in East Dubuque. If you have more than five televisions or monitors or a large quantity of items, contact and transport the items directly to T&T or another recycling center.
T&T is open Monday through Saturday and the cost of recycling is the same $25 per TV or monitor.
