Garbage & Recycling

Republic Services provides residential trash pickup in the City of Crown Point every Wednesday. In the event of a holiday, pick-up will be delayed one day.

Benefits of Recycling

Did you know that recycling not only benefits our community and environment, but generates funds to put in place new city Parks?

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours — or the equivalent of a half a gallon of gasoline. Remember, the more you recycle the more Crown Point benefits!
