This is a great time to start recycling or expand what you are already recycling. This website is a resource for Lake County residents who want to learn more about waste reduction and recycling availability. It is financially and ecologically beneficial to reduce the amount of garbage we produce and recycle what we can, rather than simply filling up the landfill. Lake County is promoting recycling by providing a place to drop off recyclables, as well as offering free presentations to inform groups that want to learn more about the process.
