Drop-Off Service

Prairieland Disposal offers a convenient drop-off service during our normal business hours. NO DROP OFFS are permitted after business hours. Any drop offs after hours are unauthorized and will be considered "fly dumping" and may be subject to prosecution at the full extent of the law.

Unfortunately we do not offer assistance for unloading items as this is an unassisted drop-off service.

E-Scraps / Electronics: We are now working with SWALCO and will accept a maximum of 7 E-Waste items per visit, excluding Christmas lights and cords, and including one TV or CRT monitor (some fees may apply to TV's and CRT monitors, call us for details).

Batteries: We are now accepting car batteries, truck batteries, and rechargeable batteries (for example hand-held drill batteries).

White Goods: We are now accepting white goods (no water softeners). A fee may apply.

Clothing and Textiles: We are now accepting unwanted clothing and textiles (throw rugs and towels).

Athletic shoes: We now collect and recycle unwearable athletic shoes at our Lake Barrington drop-off facility. And we collect other styles of used — but wearable — shoes and boots and donate them to charity.

Food Organics: We collect vegetative food and organic scraps in biodegradable bags at no charge at our on-site drop-off located at 1350 N Old Rand Rd. Wauconda, IL 60084. Please no plastic bags.

Please feel free to call us at 847-381-9300 to learn more.
