Lake Metroparks supports recycling!
Lake Metroparks collaborates with other county agencies to collectively increase the amount of materials currently recycled in our community to equal previous levels, and then surpass that to set new records for materials recycled within Lake County.
Please help keep Lake County clean and green - recycle!
