The Lake County Landfill is helping in the effort by using a voucher program:


  1. Landfill users paying for a load of 1 yard up to 3 yards between the dates of Saturday, May 18th and Saturday July 20th will receive a voucher for an equal or lesser amount of trash, to be redeemed in one trip. (Example: If you bring 3 yards of trash, you will receive a voucher for 3 yards of trash, which may be redeemed in one trip, not a little bit at a time) 
  1. Vouchers will be issued only to Lake County residents and property owners.

         3. Vouchers may only be redeemed from May 18th through September 21, 2019. 

  1. Batteries, electronics, mattresses and appliances will be charged at the normal rate during this program and are not part of the voucher system. 
  1. The number of vouchers is not limited. 
  1. Only Lake County residents and those non-residents who own property in Lake County are eligible to participate. IDs or bills to prove residency will be necessary. 
  1. Commercial users of the landfill are not eligible for the program. 


The intent of this program is to encourage the clean-up of Lake County. For more information on this Lake County program call Michael at Lake County Public Works @ 486-0259 or the Landfill @ 486-3099.
