Porter County Recycling & Waste Reduction

Wait times may vary. 

Porter County residents, you are invited to bring your household hazardous waste to this event for proper disposal. “Household hazardous waste” or “HHW” are unwanted products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients that require special care upon disposal. Find out what we'll accept, and what products we won't accept.

There will be a gas can exchange at this event only. Old gas cans will be exchanged for new environmentally friendly 2.5-gallon gas cans. Supplies of these cans are very limited, and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit one new gas can per vehicle/family. Gas cans are compliments of Northwest Indiana Clean Air
