SWALCO’s HCW collection program diverts HCW from the municipal waste stream by sending it to IEPA approved recycling and reuse facilities thereby reducing the volume and toxicity of our municipal waste stream. Our HCW program is a hybrid program consisting of year round public drop-off events (at our Gurnee facility) and mobile collection events (various locations throughout Lake County). This hybrid program is the first of its kind in the State of Illinois providing residents increased accessibility and year round “disposal” opportunities. BUSINESS/COMMERCIAL WASTE will not be accepted. NO LATEX PAINT!
