The survey project identified barriers to proper recycling/reuse of electronic products in Illinois counties, statewide. The recycling phone survey project was conducted December 2013 through March 2014. Information was obtained from persons designated as county recycling
coordinators, and from businesses, local governments, and agencies registered with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) to collect, recycle/refurbish, or process electronic products collected in Illinois. Phone survey data was gathered regarding: who's doing what in Illinois counties with regard to electronics recycling; who the designated recycling coordinator is for each Illinois county (and awareness of the current IEPA annual $2,000 grant opportunity); and types of barriers to proper recycling/reuse of electronics which may exist in Illinois counties, with input from local government recycling coordinators, registered electronic items collectors and recyclers. The report includes a description of the survey design and survey population, data collection
methods, and results. Observations and highlights of the survey project results are provided.
