Where to Recycle
The MCC Sustainability Center and the Lou Marchi Total Recycling Institute publish the official McHenry County Green Guide annually. Full of new recycling and reusing information, it includes a Green Living section on where to buy green products locally and online. The Institute also provides education on related solid waste topics.
