Dumpsters for Public Use Rolled Out Again

(La Porte, IN) - Dumpsters for the public to use for cleaning up their properties are out again this year in the City of La Porte.  The dumpsters are across the street from the Water Department on Lake Street and outside the TransPorte office at 1st and L streets.


Jeff Batchelor, the city’s Director of Code Enforcement, said the dumpsters are for use by city residents only.  “Please take advantage of it,” he said.


No paints or liquids of any kinds are allowed to be placed in the dumpsters, which were heavily used during the first year of the program designed to clean up the city.    Batchelor said a $50,000 grant from the city’s Urban Enterprise Association is paying the cost of the program.
