Curbside Recycling

SWALCO has developed a common list of recyclable materials and guidelines for recycling in Lake County. This document was designed to be a simple 1 page, go-to recycling guide for the Lake County resident that will:
  • Provide a list of acceptable/recyclable items commonly found in the home or workplace with special notations and guidelines that address related issues and questions,
  • Address some of the more common and frequent questions related to recycling,
  • Provide a list of some of the more common items that are not acceptable/recyclable.
These guidelines (PDF) should serve as a definitive source of information for Lake County residents to assist in clarifying some of the misleading and/or outdated information and to try and address some of the more frequent questions and concerns that residents have with regards to curbside recycling.
