Curbside Recycling Quiz #1

...Ahhh, another garbage day in beautiful Lake County, Illinois has arrived.

We scuttle through our homes to pick up remnants of junk mail, sales flyers, food containers...normal stuff, stuff we clearly understand as "recyclable", stuff that either goes into the garbage container or the recycling container. But there ALWAYS seems to be that ONE ITEM that leads us to a long, puzzled pause in front of our containers. We do our best to select the “most accurate” receptacle based on our knowledge and hope for the best!

You’re not alone and we can help!

Familiarizing ourselves with Lake County's recycling guidelines can have a positive impact on the lifespan of our local landfills, bolster recycling goals for our municipalities, assist with comprehensive decision-making, and most importantly make it easier to RECYCLE!!

Let's take the quiz!
