Welcome to the City of East Chicago’s Public Works web site.

The mission of the Public Work Department is to provide services to the residents of East Chicago through the collection, disposal and recycling of discarded material in a manner that is safe and well-organized to enhance the health and welfare of the City of East Chicago.

I have made it a departmental goal to provide the residents of East Chicago the best services possible. Through the internet, you will be able to find information about the services that our department provides.

On June 1st, 2013 the city of East Chicago embarked on the consolidating of various departments to create one Public Works Department.

The Public Works Department combines Solid Waste/ Park/ Utilities and General Services Street Department.

Responsibilities include Garbage Collection, Recycle Collection, Graffiti Removal, Street Repairs through paving and/or patching, Park Maintenance, Snow Removal, City-Wide curb painting (per code), installation of signage and/or signs, Compost/Brush pick-up, minor municipal building repairs and maintenance, Street Sweeping, abandon lot and maintenance through grass cutting and/or removal of debris (as per Code Enforcement), bridge attendant, Rubbish pick-up, Annual Bagless Leaf collection (begins Oct and runs thru December) and the distribution of city-wide garbage and recycle containers.
The city is divided into Zones. Each zone is assigned a Supervisor and Foreman to assure the best services for our residents.
