‚ÄčCommunity Recycling in Calumet County

Calumet County offers several Electronics and Appliance Events throughout the year for county residents. At these events, residents can bring their unwanted electronics and appliances for disposal through one of our vendors (some fees may apply). 


These events offer an environmentally friendly alternative to residents for the disposal of their unwanted electronics and appliances. This program not only reduces the amount of materials being sent directly to the landfill, but it also reduces the potential of toxins from electronics and appliances entering the environment. 


During our 2016 events, we collected almost 30,000 pounds of material, and we are currently on track to exceed that amount in 2017. For information about our programs and the event schedule, please follow the links below.
