WINONA LAKE — 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 the environment is a positive step forward.
Beginning on July 1, the Winona Lake Street Department will no longer pick up curbside plastic waste bags. Resident of Winona Lake will be provided a total of 15 (three bundles of five) “biodegradable” bags. The bags can be obtained at the Winona Lake Town Hall from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 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.
