- Drop off items at the main entrance. The fee for items under the one-ton minimum is $50.00.
Dumping and Burning
- Dumping or burning trash is illegal. If you see anyone dumping or burning garbage, please call the Recycle Depot so that we can contact the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
- When you burn trash, you are making poison–furniture, tires, mattresses/box springs, and other domestics now contain chemical compounds such as flame retardants that are carcinogenic when burned. Protect yourself and your loved ones and DO NOT BURN TRASH.
Here are some possible options for your still-usable items!
City residents: call your street department
County residents: may burn clean piles of brush. (There is currently no option for county yard waste).
