Going Green with NPL

Do you have dried-up markers, old paint brushes and broken crayons to get rid of? During the month of August, you can recycle them at the library. Drop them off at the Youth Services desk on the second floor and we will send them to Terracycle to be repurposed. You can also bring them to our booth at the Farmers Market on July 23 or August 20.

Did you know you can recycle milk and juice cartons made of paperboard? Here is a list of the types of containers you can put in your recycling bin in Northbrook:

  • Aluminum cans, trays and foil
  • Steel cans and tins
  • Milk and juice cartons or jugs
  • Glass bottles and jars

  • Detergent and fabric softener containers
  • Health and beauty product containers
