Changes are coming to how South Bend charges fees for trash pickups, and it’s good for some people and bad for others.

The city has created new penalties for dumping hazardous waste in curbsite trash containers, a $10 fee if caught after a warning, along with a charge when you forgot to put your container out on the curb and have to call a return trip.

However, the South Bend Tribune is also reporting the city is cutting the fee in half for extra yard waste pickups and will no longer charge a container replacement fee if a theft report is filed with police one time only. The city pays anywhere from $37,000 to over $57,000 dollars a year on replacement containers.

  1. Awesome! We can now get penalized by the city and pay more for a city service that we already pay for. Damn, those roundabouts must have been expensive. I live in the city limits of South Bend and pay $4000 for property taxes. South Bend is out of control with the fees, taxes, penalties levied on us. I am seriously looking to move back to Mishawaka. South Bend sucks!
