Solid Waste Management

Welcome to the Ogle County Solid Waste Management Department Website!  We hope that you will find these pages helpful in your efforts to reduce waste, increase recycling, and reduce what gets sent to local landfills.

The mission of the Department is to promote a clean and healthy environment by encouraging recycling, waste reduction, and safe disposal options for waste generated in Ogle County.  We strive to fulfill this mission through educational programs and information, recycling grants and initiatives, local monitoring and enforcement of solid waste laws and regulations, and the implementation of special collection events that benefit the residents of Ogle County.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
