The last Saturday of spring, summer and fall, the Algonquin Township Road District allows people to drop off old TVs, computer monitors and other electronic defices for free.
On Saturday, I noticed a new feature, an electronic sign telling of the event.
And, this is the first time that I have seen the sign asking for identification.
I was amused that Derek Lee, checking my address, had to call up information on his cell phone to make sure I lived in Algonquin Township. Since the Road District provides no services to the Village of Lakewood, that probably stimulated the internet search.
The electronics are loaded into big cardboard boxes and rolled to a trailer for loading.
