Senior Yard Clean Up

May 9, 2015

Wauconda Township and The United Partnership for a Better Community co-sponsor this volunteer event of raking, planting, and general light yard tidying. Call Lisa Knight to volunteer or to request a yard to be cleaned at 847-526-1800. 

Wauconda has partnered with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County to provide more recycling opportunities. The Wauconda Textile Recycling Bin is located at Public Works adjacent to the electronics recycling bin.  


It is estimated that nearly 85% of all clothing and textiles end up in landfills in the U.S. today. Textile and clothing waste is a significant problem in our country. It is estimated that anywhere from 5-10% of all waste that is sent to municipal landfills is comprised of textiles. Let's do our part to recycle these clothing items and save our landfill space.
