Can I Recycle Styrofoam?

While there may be a recycling symbol embossed on the bottom of your Styrofoam container, Lake County does not have a way to recycle Styrofoam. Please throw all Styrofoam in the trash instead.

You can also consider bringing your own take-home containers to a restaurant for leftovers or take-out orders to reduce the amount of Styrofoam that goes into the landfill.

For more information, please explore the recycling tips on, or ask a member of the Recycling Center team at the Lake County Landfill. Thank you for recycling with care!
