The Evansville Water & Sewer Utility announced that Fall Heavy Trash Pick-up will begin Monday, August 19 and will run through Friday, October 21.
This semi-annual curbside service is available to City residents who pay for trash service with their water bill, including newly-annexed areas.
Apartment complexes, mobile home communities and business/commercial customers are not eligible.
To help keep crews on schedule and prevent heavy trash from sitting out on the curb longer than necessary, the number of days allocated for collection in each specific area has been determined based on the volume of heavy trash set out in the past and the number of days required to collect it.
Heavy trash must be placed in manageable, organized piles where normal weekly trash is collected before 6 a.m. on the first day collection is scheduled in an area.
Items that will be collected include:
Items that will NOT be collected include:
Heavy trash that does not meet these requirements will not be picked up.
If a customer has put their heavy trash out according to the requirements above yet feels they were missed, they can call Republic Waste Services at 424-3345 within two days to report a possible missed pick-up.
Note that many items not collected through the City's heavy trash pick-up can be properly disposed of through programs offered by the Solid Waste District, including Tire Amnesty Days, Electronics Recycling Days and Household Hazardous Waste Day (Tox Away Day).
Additional information about these programs and upcoming program dates is available in the Solid Waste District's section of the City Website or by calling 436-7800.
