Solid Waste process center open Sept. 12

The Dubois County Solid Waste District is holding monthly Saturday events for residents unable to use District Process Center services during the regular daily public hours. This will be held on Saturday, September 12 from 8 a.m. to noon ET. The process center is located at 1103 S. 350 West, Jasper.

Items normally accepted at the Process Center will be accepted during this time. Items accepted at the Process Center include electronics, appliances, household hazardous waste materials (HHW), fluorescent bulbs, cooking oil, large metal items, and tires. Information on acceptable items can be found at and then by searching the 3R Waste Wizard or by calling the District at 812-482-7865. Unloading assistance is not available and residents should bring a helper if unable to do so themselves.

In addition to unloading their own items, additional safety protocols are in place. Residents are required to wear a face covering while on site and to stay in their vehicle until the attendant has greeted them. One resident will be served at a time, so plan for delays.

 Process Center Saturday is for Dubois County residents only. No businesses will be accepted. No unloading assistance available. Although a large/bulky item dumpster is on site, large loads will be refused and referred to the Blackfoot landfill in Winslow. All items taken during this time are also accepted during our normal public hours of 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Friday, so residents are asked to reserve this event for those unable to come during those hours. All regular fees apply. 

Residents having large/bulky non-recyclable items such as mattresses, chairs and couches are reminded that the Ferdinand Recycling and Trash drop site located at 9781 S. Ferdinand Road NW now has a large item dumpster that is open Saturdays. See www. for information on items accepted at the Ferdinand Site.

 The Process Center will hold Saturday hours once per month through October. The next event will be held Saturday, October 3 from 8 to 12 noon. Monthly Saturdays will cease during the winter months and will resume in March.
