Fall Clean Up Dates Announced

(La Porte, IN) - Dates for the annual fall clean-up in La Porte have been announced.


According to the mayor's office, the clean-up is scheduled for November 7-11 for city residents to discard large and heavy trash.


Mayor Tom Dermody said the clean-up is a bit later this year due to scheduling conflicts with RTS, the City's third-party trash vendor.


"We normally provide Fall Clean Up during the month of October, but we are hopeful that these extra two weeks will give residents the time they need to get rid of unwanted items before we head into winter," Dermody said.


  • All trash must be securely tied in bags;
  • All mattresses must be fully wrapped in plastic or otherwise sealed/covered;
  • All large items, such as small furniture, must be fully wrapped in plastic or otherwise sealed/covered; and
  • Waste generated from the construction, renovation, repair, and demolition of residences will not be collected as part of Fall Cleanup.

"Keeping our community clean has been a top priority for this administration, and the bi-annual clean-ups have been an incredible tool. I hope to see homes throughout our community taking advantage." 


RTS workers will not pick up any trash that is not in compliance.
