How do I establish service, add or replace a collection container or inquire about billing matters?

Most Lake County municipalities contract with a single company to provide recycling and waste collection services, however, some residents and businesses (including those in unincorporated areas) may contract for these services on their own. For more information about establishing service, adding or replacing collection containers and billing matters, contact your local service provider or city/village officials. Please check out Your Community Program member pages. These pages will provide information about your neighborhood including your waste hauler.
