PERMANENT CLOSURE OF DROP-OFF RECYCLING CENTERS

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, starting with the center at the Cedar Lake Public Works Facility. Residents without curbside recycling are encouraged to contact their garbage hauler for curbside recycling options.  Please visit our website at www.lcswmd.com for recycling resource information.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause. materials for the Center’s receptacles:
