Yard Waste Drop-Off Site

Accepted & Unaccepted Materials

Chesterton does not landfill grass clippings. The Street Department has established a drop-off site for its residents. Town residents may bring grass, leaves, garden waste, and brush to the Street Department.

The site is very convenient for residents as it is open 7 days a week until dusk. The department then recycles and composts the material. Compost and woodchips are given away at no charge.


To avoid any fines the yard waste drop-off site is for residents who live within the corporate limits of Chesterton.

Porter County houses several other compost drop-off sites. For more information, please explore the link below.
