Refuse and Recycling


Garbage is generally picked up every Monday. If your refuse/trash/garbage has been missed by Republic Services, please leave your receptacle at the street and call Republic Services at (219) 926-1046 no later than 10:00 AM the following morning so that they can schedule a pick up for you. Alternatively, you may call the Town Office and leave a message. If a holiday falls on a Monday, garbage will be picked up the following day.

REMEMBER: Set your receptacle out at the curb before 7:00 AM on Monday morning. Make sure that the can is closed, and any additional overflow trash is protected from predation by the local wildlife. The refuse service does not collect the trash that gets strewn about. If this happens at your residence you may need an additional receptacle.

You will be notified.


Recycling service is managed and provided by LaPorte County Solid Waste. If they miss a pick-up, or for any recycling issues, please call them at 1-800-483-7700 to resolve the issue. Recycling is generally picked up every other Tuesday, but the list of recycling pickup dates can be found here: Recycle Pick Up: Every Other Tuesday.
