ATTENTION ALL ST. JOSEPH COUNTY
On August 29, 2016, a public meeting was held by the Board of Directors (Board) for the Solid Waste Management District of St. Joseph County (SWMD). With an eye on reducing costs, the Board approved that Recycling fees will now be collected as a "Special Assessment" on County Property tax rolls. $20.00 will be collected with property taxes twice annually. City of South Bend residents will no longer be billed on the Water Bill. County residents will not receive paper bills.
If you currently have an "automatic payment" set-up with a bank, credit union, or credit card it needs to be cancelled. Effective immediately, the SWMD will no longer accept cash, check, or credit card payments. If there is a "delinquent" balance, it will be added to the tax bill.
The Solid Waste Management District serves all residents throughout St. Joseph County.
The District was formed in 1991 by St. Joseph County Resolution 5-97. This resolution established a District in accordance with IC 13-21-2-14.5.
