Lake Zurich partners with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) to provide a variety of recycling programs, including:
Clothing & textile recycling
Residential electronics recycling
Chemical waste disposal options
The Village of Lake Zurich's styrofoam recycling pilot program last year was a success and we have already collected six semi-trailers full of foam that has been diverted from the landfills. The dropped off styrofoam is melted down and turned into new products at a facility in the western Chicago suburbs.
Collection is in the parking lot of the American Legion, 51 Lions Drive, on Tuesday from Noon to 2 pm and Friday from 9 am to 11 am.
We do not accept grocery/plastic bags, only styrofoam.
Where: American Legion Hall Parking Lot
When: Tuesdays: Noon - 2 pm, Fridays 9 - 11 am
Also open the third Saturday of each month from 10 am to noon all summer from May through October.
