The Town of Winamac recently decided to outsource the collection of trash and recycling. Advanced Disposal is now in charge of both. Residents are reminded to have their trash and recycling containers at the curb by 6 a.m. on the morning of their scheduled pickup. Also, anyone who no longer wants the small recycling containers provided by the Town of Winamac can put them out empty with their trash on either April 7 or April 8and the town will pick them up. Anyone with questions can call the Winamac Town Office at 574-946-3451.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
