Open to La Porte County residents, our free hazardous waste collections provide a safe and convenient way for residents to dispose of dangerous chemicals and Sharps (injection needles/syringes). Not only do these collections keep pollution out of our environment and drinking water, they also protect waste industry workers from injury on the job.

Twice a year, the Solid Waste District holds larger collections at which residents may recycle tires, appliances and electronics in addition to hazardous waste. On-site confidential document shredding is also available. There is a small fee for tire recycling, but otherwise all collections are free.
Electronic recycling2
If it plugs into the wall or runs on a battery, it doesn’t belong in your trash. Electronics contain several types of recyclable material that are important to recover. Bring your unwanted electronics to one of two locations in Michigan City and La Porte for free recycling.
The Solid Waste District runs a compost site at Westville Correctional Facility where compost, mulch and certified debarked firewood are sold to the public. It is also one of two sites in the county where yard waste may be disposed.
