Porter County Recycling & Waste Reduction


Recycling Collection:

All cities and towns in Porter County, excluding Dune Acres, provide curbside collection for their residents.

However, apartments, condos and most other multifamily dwellings in Porter County must contract with a waste hauler for services.

The residents of unincorporated Porter County as well as Dune Acres must individually contract with private waste haulers for curbside service.

  • Indiana Waste Service, (219) 613-1300
  • Republic Services, (219) 662-8600
  • Homewood Disposal, (708) 798-1004
  • Waste Management of NWI, 1-800-443-5646

While the District does not provide curbside service, we do provide and service seven drop off locations for residents and businesses that are unable to obtain curbside recycling or have more materials than their totes can contain.
