Free Event Recycle Containers Available for Porter County Residents for Summer Events

The Recycling and Waste Reduction District of Porter County says it will provide free event recycle containers and liners for Porter County residents planning summer events. Porter County community groups, schools, non-profits, commercial businesses and residents are encouraged to utilize the free program. Event recycle containers are great for graduation parties, fundraisers, concerts, and gatherings where large amounts of waste can easily be generated. Hosts and event organizers can prevent large amounts of recyclables from entering landfills by helping guests to separate their waste. Recycle containers can be placed next to garbage cans in high traffic areas at events and be used to recycle common items such as aluminum cans, plastics and glass bottles.

Event recycle containers are supplied with clear plastic liners that fit directly onto the collection containers. The Recycling and Waste Reduction District of Porter County suggests use of event recycle containers at gatherings both large and small in size.“People prefer to recycle items rather than place them in the trash. If the district can be the lender to promote recycling, we are happy to provide this service at no charge to Porter County residents,” said Keri Marrs Barron, Executive Director of Recycling & Waste Reduction District. Interested individuals are asked to confirm availability and reserve ClearStream recycle containers at least one week prior to scheduled events.
