July 1, 2017 - Biodegradable Bag Program Starts 

The Town of Winona Lake is committed to an on-going effort to be stewards of the environment. The elimination of plastic yard waste bags from our environment is a positive step forward.

Beginning on July 1, 2017, we will no longer pick up curbside plastic yard waste bags. Residents of Winona Lake will be provided a total of 15 (3 bundles of 5) “biodegradable” bags. The bags can be obtained at the Winona Lake Town Hall from 8am until 4pm Monday through Friday.

Only items that were previously placed in plastic bags shall be placed in the new bags provided. After the 15 bag allotment has been realized, the purchase of additional bags will be the resident’s responsibility.

Leaves will still be picked for a brief period in the Spring and for the Fall leaf season by the leaf vacum truck. The bags are to be utilized outside the times that the leaf vacum truck is in service.
