MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. – The Michigan City Police Department posted to Facebook the announcement of the Annual Spring Clean-up from the Michigan City Refuse Department, beginning March 22nd.

The department requests that all residents separate debris that is to be discarded into three categories:

  • Piles of brush, limbs, shrubs, yard waste, and unpainted concrete.
  • Piles for rugs, lumber, furniture, mattresses, and box springs.
  • Piles for appliances, such as stoves, refrigerators, air conditions, water tanks, and un-rimmed or rimmed tires.

The department asks the above items separated as described above, residents may place items on the curbside or in the alleys. The Refuse and Street Departments will not be taking calls for spring cleanup items, residents should place items out for pick-up at their allotted time.
