Material Drop Off

Organic Resources is a place for Michiana residents to bring organic material in for us to process into products that will be available to the public, such as mulch and compost. 

How much does dumping cost? What materials are / are not accepted?

Organic Resources accepts only organic material so we may process and reuse it. The cost of dumping is $3.65/yard for residents within city limits. For customers outside city limits (including five-digit South Bend addresses), the fee is $11/yard.

The amount of material will be determined by the office attendant. Below is a list of items that we DO and DO NOT accept at our facility.

Brush, leaves, branches, grass clippings, garden clippings, woodchips, logs

Dirt, rocks, sand, sod, concrete, processed wood, trash(of any and all kinds), stumps/stump grindings.
