Grafton E-Waste Event Coming Saturday

Organizers expect a heavy turnout Saturday for Grafton Township's first E-waste recycling event at the Township complex. Volunteers from the Huntley Lions Club, M D C Environmental Company and COM2 Recycling Solutions  will help residents and businesses unload their unwanted, busted or obsolete electronic gear from 10 am to 2 pm.

The event's  for electronics: computer systems (including laptops and notebooks); peripherals like printers, scanners, copiers and faxes;  accessories like keyboards, mice, speakers, cords and cables; external drives; DVD players and game consoles and (joy of joys) computer monitors and TV's which, most places, cost extra money to recycle.  But, what the heck, bring your kitchen mixer and toaster, too, although not your old washing machine.  A list of what's OK and what isn't's here:

The Grafton Township complex is at 10109 Vine Street in Huntley.  Upgrading Route 47's changed Vine Street access.  There's still one from 47 directly but it's in a different place now.  There's still access from 47 and Reed Road, too.

In the pic:  Grafton's E-waste recycling's expected to be similar to this one by the Village of Algonquin last year.

REALLY sad when the township supervisor alienates herself to the point where she has to spend township tax dollars to host her personal web site.

It's not her personal website. She posts township information, for which I am grateful.

There really is no good reason that she cannot post on the official Grafton Township website. She wanted to have the YouTube video listing of all the board meetings there. To my knowledge, there has never been a discussion about this with the board as to pros and cons for doing so, so that is originally why she started her own. What her reason for starting the second site under her name is I don't know, because anything that I have seen on it could just as easily be put on the original site.

There's been a lot of discussion on two occasions I recall about websites but no conclusions. The "official" website is maintained by the Assessor's Office. The other one is supposed to be free via membership in the Township Officials of Illinois organization.--ed.

Grafton definitely has some supervisor waste to get rid of!
