Mishawaka Trash Pickup & Recycling
The City of Mishawaka provides residents with curbside trash pickup through our Central Services Division. For information about our pickup schedule or trash regulations, visit this link.
We are lucky enough to reside in Northern Indiana and experience all four seasons. This means that in addition to the many year-round services the City of Mishawaka provides, we also perform services that are seasonally appropriate. We have long been committed to helping our residents with seasonal cleanup issues such as leaf removal in the fall and Christmas tree disposal in January and December.
Have questions about a seasonal service? Please contact us for more information.
Alley Paving Program
We split the cost of our Alley Paving Program with residents 50/50. We place 2 inches of bituminous pavement across a path 10 feet in width. Upon request, a field inspection of the alley is conducted to determine the feasibility of paving the alley. Please contact us at (574) 258-1619 to file a request to learn more about the program.
Mishawaka’s Engineering Department maintains all sanitary and storm sewers. This department handles recordkeeping for the city sewers and provides technical and administrative assistance to the Sewer Lateral Insurance Program. Need to contact our Engineering Department?
Curb & Sidewalk Replacement Program
First instituted in 1986, this program encourages single-family homeowners to repair or replace deteriorated public curbs and sidewalks adjacent to their property. We will split the cost of repairs 50/50 between the homeowner and the City of Mishawaka. This program is used for the repair of curbs, sidewalks, drive approaches and more. Need to get in touch? Call us at (574) 258-1619 or submit a request.
Mishawaka residents with disabilities who require special parking services at their residence can contact the traffic manager at the Engineering Department or the Police Department. Residents will need to submit a request for a disabled parking designation on the street outside of their homes.
The Central Services Division has many services that help maintain the quality of our neighborhoods. Depending on the season of the year, they include street sweeping, re-paving, patching, crack filling, resurfacing, snowplowing, curbside leaf collection and storm damage pickup. Our employees have become experts in ice storm cleanup after weeks of around-the-clock tree debris pickup.
