Visit a Compost Site

Recycle a wide range of household items, drop off organic yard waste, pick up mulch and compost, and more! Select a location to learn more. Note that the Boone Grove and Portage Compost Sites are closed for season December 12th-March 20.

Where Can I Recycle It?

Whether you have coffee cans full of used batteries, a collection of old eyeglasses, a pile of tires, or something else to dispose of, we can help. Discover drop-off locations for some of our most requested items and search our directory for more unusual items.

Education

Porter County Recycling offers educational, interactive programs designed to help adults and children learn about topics ranging from recycling to composting to the contributions that insects make in breaking down waste. Our K-8 programs are free to Porter County Schools and meet Indiana State Academic Standards.

Are plastic toys recyclable? ♻️ 🤔 The short answer is no. Many toys contain small and mixed plastic components that are difficult to separate for recycling. When your child outgrows their plastic toys, consider donating them to extend their life and keep them out of growing landfills!

Portage recycling is a pain in the ass. Do this, don't do that, don't even think about doing that...

Porter County Recycling & Waste Reduction has partnered with Porter County Public Library System to host our first Fix-It Fair, an event that highlights reuse, inviting the community to get items repaired at no cost. Volunteers and professionals provide repair at these events and educate attendees on how to make their own repairs.
