Process Center

The Dubois County Solid Waste Management District’s Process Center accepts many items not accepted at the county recycling sites. Items include: TVs, computers, e-waste and small appliances, fluorescent bulbs, paint, household hazardous waste (HHW), flammables, used cooking oil, scrap metals, large items such as couches and mattresses. Most items require a fee from $.25 to $20. The Center is available for use by Dubois County residents, agencies, organizations and small businesses. Residents are responsible for unloading items brought to the Process Center.

Please search our 3R Waste Wizard above for more details on items you may have.


Process Center reopens with above restrictions in place on 5/11/20. Expect delays. You may call 812-482-7865 with questions and to discuss other options for your items.
The Process Center public hours are Monday to Friday from 8am to 1pm. As a county office, we do observe all county holidays and closures. Please check our Facebook page for upcoming closings.
