2014 Annual Turkey Trot


Has raised over $14,000!

Proceeds benefit the Wauconda/Island  

Lake Food Pantry 

Thank you for all those who volunteered and to the Star Runners Charity for your generosity.

The Wauconda Police Department now has an incinerator to dispose of medications.  Congratulations to Chief Yost and staff for advancing Wauconda’s efforts to provide the community with effective ways to dispose of prescription drugs so that they are not abused. Additionally, Waste Management has provided a sharps disposal kiosk.  It is located in the lobby of the Police Department.  Residents can take disposable sharps (syringes & needles) containers home and deposit them in the kiosk in the Police department lobby when the container is full.

Wauconda has partnered with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County to provide more recycling opportunities. The Wauconda Textile Recycling Bin was delivered on Friday, April 18th.  The bin is located at Public Works adjacent to the electronics recycling bin.  


It is estimated that nearly 85% of all clothing and textiles end up in landfills in the U.S. today. Textile and clothing waste is a significant problem in our country. It is estimated that anywhere from 5-10% of all waste that is sent to municipal landfills is comprised of textiles. Let's do our part to recycle these clothing items and save our landfill space.
