Drop Off Recycling

Residents of Lake County, IN have the option to drop off their recyclables at several recycling centers throughout the county. Recycle anytime, but we prefer if you use the drop-off centers between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The centers accept: newspaper; cardboard; aluminum and steel cans; clear, brown and green glass bottles; plastic milk and water bottles; pop bottles; and colored detergent bottles.  These centers are for Lake County, IN residents only and NOT for businesses. 

Please do not leave larger items (mattresses, appliances, TVs, etc.) at these sites.  This is considered illegal dumping and will result in the closing of the drop-off center.
