Special Collection Events
Each year the OCSWMD plans several special
collection events targeted at waste which may be
difficult to dispose of or recycle, or which may
present hazards to public health or the environment.
These events may be cosponsored by the Lee County
Office of Solid Waste Management or the Illinois
Environmental Protection Agency, or funded entirely
by the OCSWMD.
recycling takes place annually throughout Ogle
County between December 26th and the middle of
January. Contact us for more information.
Generally, we try to schedule an electronics
recycling event in the fall and the location of
these events alternates between Lee and Ogle
Household hazardous waste (HHW), tire and oil
recycling collection events are applied for every 2
or 3 years to the IEPA and when selected, also
alternate between the two counties. To check
to see if an IEPA tire collection event is scheduled
in the area, revisit this page or check the
IEPA Website by clicking here.
Note: due to budget constraints, the IEPA is not
conducting these events at this time.
