Go to the Recycling Guide for information on what can be recycled in Portage County.

Recycling and proper disposal is important to our community and our planet. Given our current challenges with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to modify our services.

Temporarily suspended programs include:

  • Closed on Saturdays

  • Hazardous Waste Disposal

  • Confidential Shredding

  • Recycling of: batteries, bulbs, ballasts, tires, electronics, appliances with or without Freon, oil, oil filters, antifreeze, and bulky plastics

Please hold on to these items for the time being. We'll resume normal services once we feel the health and safety of our workers are no longer at risk.
