Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs and canes, carpet and padding, and all types of wood will also be accepted.

Residents may bring American flags for ceremonial destruction, as well.

In addition to Recyclepalooza, household hazardous waste collection events will be held Saturday, May 9, at Bolingbrook Village Hall, 375 W. Briarcliff Road, Bolingbrook, and Saturday, May 16, at the Will County Highway Facility, 25930 Egyptian Trail, Monee. Both events will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
