• Part of the Solution
  • Leaving a Legacy
  • Good for the Environment

RecycleRecycling programs are now an essential part of the waste removal industry. Our staff at Lakes Disposal takes pride in offering all customers big or small the ability to recycle all materials accepted by local sorting centers. The following guide will direct you as to what is accepted material for recycling.
 
Even though most items can be recycled, keep in mind that modern day separation equipment is still evolving and can only handle certain shapes of materials.   
 
Lakes Disposal works with thousands of homeowners and businesses to provide cost effective recycling solutions. Our local service and recycling experience can help meet your recycling goals.

Note: Think outside the trash… Recycle!
