Do Your Part...
Help out the environment by recycling items whenever possible during our progams and special events.
Battery Recycling has returned at the Oswegoland Park District
We will once again be providing a battery recycling service at each Park District building. The following batteries will be accepted: Alkaline (AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt, and lantern), Carbon Zinc, NiMH, Silver Oxide, and Mercury batteries. This includes button cell batteries (hearing aids, watches, etc.) and rechargeable batteries. Lithium, lithium ion, lead acid, wet cell, and leaking batteries will not be accepted. The ends of each battery must be taped or each battery must be placed in a plastic sandwich bag to prevent short circuits and damage to terminals. For additional information, please contact Mike Fee.
In an attempt to preserve our landfills, the Park District has stopped purchasing plastic water bottles for our program and special event participants. Water is instead offered with Igloo coolers and paper cups.
The Park District collects used cell phones at all buildings. These items are then donated to the Kendall County Youth Service Board which recycles these items in exchange for money to fund programs for at risk or underprivileged youth in Kendall County.
If you have questions, or know of a way to improve upon the recycling program, please contact the Park District at 630.554.1010.

- Rain barrels conserve water and help lower costs (a rain barrel can save approximately 1,300 gallons of water during peak summer months).
- Rain barrels reduce water pollution by reducing stormwater runoff, which can contain pollutants like sediment, oil, grease, bacteria and nutrients.
- Rain barrels are inexpensive and easy to build and install.
