There were major changes made to the Kane County Connects blog and e-newsletter in June of 2022. Unfortunately​, the links to the over 200 recycling articles Recycling Program staff wrote and archived prior to that date ​no longer function. Fear not though, as we have copies of our articles saved offline. We will go through our material and upload the pieces that are still relevant. Watch this space!
