Did you receive an offer from Universal Disposal?
The township does not have an exclusive contract with Universal Disposal. Universal requested the opportunity to offer special pricing for recycling & garbage pick up to the residents of Madison.

As you may know, the township's recycling center has been funded by Lake County for the past 5 years through a grant program. After 2014 the grant program will come to a close and the County will no longer be able to fund the center. Losing these grant funds means the township has to determine how to pay for the cost of having the materials hauled to the transfer station, among other costs. Coupled with the cuts the State has made over the last two years the township may not be able to afford to fund it.

The trustees felt that by allowing Universal Disposal to make this offer to the residents it could help alleviate the amount the center takes in, which will reduce some of the costs to the township, allowing the township to keep the center open.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (440) 428-5128.
