Drop Off Recycling

Due to a continual increase in illegal dumping and contamination, which results in increased costs, the Lake County Solid Waste Management District has decided to end its Recycling Center Drop Off Program.  Beginning in June, the remaining 7 sites throughout Lake County will be gradually phased out with all sites being permanently closed by October 1, 2019.   Sites with the highest levels of illegal dumping and contamination will be closed first.  Residents without curbside recycling are encouraged to contact their garbage hauler for curbside recycling options.

All cardboard must be flattened and inserted into the front slot.  All other recyclables (plastic, glass, metal) should be placed in the side hole. 

PLEASE, NO PLASTIC BAGS OF ANY KIND CAN BE PUT IN THE RECYCLING BINS. 

It is our hope that these new bins will help keep all recyclables clean and valuable.  Contaminated loads will be sent to the landfill.
