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as a definitive source of information for Lake County residents to assist in clarifying some of the misleading and/or outdated information and to try and address some of the more frequent questions and concerns that residents have with regards to curbside recycling.
