I have a number of electronic items such as tuners, amplifiers, speakers, etc. that I wish to dispose of. Can you direct me to a recycling facility for such equipment? I live in Rockton, IL 61072, just north of Rockford.

If the equipment still works (or even if it doesn't), you could offer it through Rockford's Freecycle group. See http://www.freecycle.org/group/US/Illinois/Rockford for more information.
Best Buy's recycling program is one option (http://www.bestbuy.com/recycling). They take audio components, but I don't know if they take them at any time or if you have to wait for a specific event. Call your local store to find out.
The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity has a directory of Illinois electronics recyclers on the web at http://www.illinoisbiz.biz/NR/rdonlyres/3622F4E9-0FC6-4F02-9820-231C99D2A88D/0 FY_08_IllinoisDirectoryofElectronicEquipmentandComputerRecyclers.pdf. There are several listed for Winnebago County.
