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.

Putting salt on your driveway this week? Please remember: SALT BAGS ARE NOT RECYCLABLE! Because these bags have traces of salt they must be thrown away and are not accepted with plastic bag recycling. Like or share this post to help remind our neighbors!
