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 co-sponsored by the Lee County Office of Solid Waste Management or the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, or funded entirely by the OCSWMD.

Christmas tree recycling takes place annually throughout Ogle County between December 26th and the middle of January. Contact us for more information.
