Going Green with NPL

The Village Garage in Northbrook is no longer accepting paint for recycling. Paint must be taken to the Northfield Township Road District garage at 1928 Lehigh in Glenview. See the township website for other materials you can recycle there.

Large electronics are still accepted at the Northbrook Village Garage on the first Tuesday of the month through October. You can also recycle small electronics, light bulbs and batteries Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm.

During our renovation, we will continue to accept household batteries for recycling as well as donations of old cell phones and eyeglasses. The bins are still in the lobby near the east entrance. Thanks for your contributions.
