Let’s Talk Recycling!

¡Hablamos de Reciclaje!

While residents’ interest in recycling is high, Lake County faces ongoing issues with trash and other items being placed in the wrong bins. Because of this, the county even had to temporarily close some recycling bins last spring and summer.

Cloud City Conservation Center (C4), in partnership with Lake County Public Works Department,  is using grant funding to research knowledge of recycling and conduct a communications campaign this spring.
