Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), The Solid Waste Management District Office and HHW Center will close to the public at 4PM, Thursday March 19, 2020 until further notice. 
The Curbside Recycling will STILL be collected on your normal pickup day.

For missed pick up please call Borden Waste-Away at (800) 683-6801.

Our partners at INTEGRA dropped off SECURE/LOCKED bins for document shredding (started 1/10/19). Residents can come to our Kerr Street HHW Center during business hours and safely dispose of confidential papers that are piling up at home. No on site fees!


On January 14, 2019, a public meeting was held by the Board of Directors (Board) for the Solid Waste Management District of St. Joseph County (SWMD).  With an eye on reducing costs, the Board approved that Recycling fees will now be collected as a "Special Assessment" on County Property tax rolls.  $17.00 Recycling Fee and $4.50 Hazardous Waste Fee will be collected with property taxes twice annually.  City of South Bend residents will no longer be billed on the Water Bill.  County residents will not receive paper bills.


We do not offer large item pick up. We also have no association with leaf or yard waste pick up. If you live in the City of South Bend please call (574)233-0311. For St. Joseph County residents please call (574)213-9440.
