Trash Pickup & Recycling

Home > Residential Services > Trash Pickup & Recycling


Mishawaka provides our residents with a high-value, low-cost service for the weekly curbside collection of recyclables, trash, and garbage, large furniture and appliances, and yard waste. Residents are now billed for trash service on their Mishawaka Utility bill and will no longer receive a separate bill for trash & recycling collection from Republic Services.

Residents can view our Trash Pickup Days map to determine which day to expect curbside service. If a Mishawaka resident is going on vacation or need to alert our offices of a vacancy at a property please complete the Mishawaka Vacation & Vacancy Form and submit it to the Mishawaka Utilities Business Office.

Yard waste reminders -  

For years our trash company has required that Mishawaka citizens separate their yard waste from their regular trash and place them in separate locations for pick up. Republic Services would like to remind you that this is no longer the case. By dumping yard waste, especially grass, into landfills it helps to produce methane gas which in turn helps landfills to decompose better.

Yard waste and regular trash will be picked up by the same truck and does not need to be separated in different containers or placed in separate locations.
