Today:  a conversation with Donna Stuckert of the Porter County Recycling and Waste Reduction district, on the county's composting operations -- an added drop-off facility in Portage -- and the 2018 household hazardous waste collection schedule around Porter County.  The drop-offs allow residents a chance to bring in items that cannot be thrown  into the trash, such as oils, old gasoline and fluorescent bulbs.
