Dumpster Program Extended

(La Porte, IN) - A dumpster program in the city of LaPorte has been extended because of high demand.  Code Enforcement Director Jeff Batchelor said dumpsters have been emptied 70 times since they were set out for the public to use earlier this year.


Batchelor said one dumpster, during the extended clean up period, was placed beside Pine Lake Avenue at Waverly Road.  He said where the second dumpster will be placed, during the extended period for the clean-up program, will be decided in the near future.


Batchelor said the city’s urban enterprise association funded the cost initially and is paying for the dumpsters to be out for the extended period as well.
