Expanded Recycling Program

The City of Valparaiso has developed an expanded recyclable material collection system. We have constructed a holding area which is used to collect, bale, and prepare materials for transport to a recycling center. Currently, we have two drop off points for recycable materials, as listed below, for residents and non-residents. This will decrease the waste stream currently going to a landfill and offer an alternative means of disposal. There is no increased cost associated with this service.

Recycling Bins(Recycling Bins located at City Hall)

 

Drop off locations:

Please place items in designated bins.

Acceptable Materials:

  1. Cardboard- Corrugated Cardboard or Boxboard (cereal box)
  2. White office paper
  3. Mixed paper/newspaper
  4. Plastics- #1 (PET or PETE) and #2 (HDPE)
  5. Aluminum cans, which will continue to be donated to the fireworks fund 

Due to the current market it is not cost effective to recycle glass containers at this time.

Please help us out! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Special thanks go to Lewis Middle School for supporting our recycling efforts by providing a strategically placed drop off location!
