Plastic Easter Egg Recycling at Valparaiso Compost Site

The Recycling and Waste Reduction District of Porter County is piloting a new way to use colorful plastic eggs instead of disposing them. Residents can drop off gently used plastic eggs that are in good condition at the Valparaiso compost site on West Lincolnway for two weeks, starting Monday April 5th through April 19th. After the plastic eggs are collected district staff will sanitize and give them to local organizations for future events.  The compost site hours are Monday through Saturday, 8am- 5pm.
