 Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel announced today that Heavy Trash Pick-up will begin on Monday, April 11, and is scheduled to run through Monday, June 13. 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 any longer than necessary, the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility and Allied Waste analyzed collection volume data from past years before setting this spring’s heavy trash collection schedule. 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.

The collection schedule and area maps are available on the City’s GIS website – – by clicking “Heavy Trash Pickup Dates” on the right.

Heavy trash must be placed in manageable, organized piles where normal weekly trash is collected before 6:00 a.m. on the first day collection is scheduled in an area.

Items that will be collected include:

  • Carpet (Must be rolled in sections no longer than 4 ft. and no wider than 2 ft. in diameter.)
  • Furniture (Sofas, tables, chairs, mattresses, box springs, etc.)
  • Appliances (Stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, etc.) (Limit two of each type of appliance per household.)
  • Electronics (Televisions, stereos, etc.) (NO computers or accessories.)
  • Building materials/construction debris (Must be in trash cans, boxes, etc. of such size and weight that they can be reasonably lifted by two average adults. Containers must be strong enough that they do not break apart while being lifted even if they are wet.) (Privacy fence sections must be cut in half or smaller manageable size.) (NO concrete blocks or steel poles.)

Items that will NOT be collected include:

  • Any trash that Allied Waste would pick up as part of its regular residential waste collection contract
  • Automobile parts
  • Batteries
  • Tires
  • Hazardous materials
  • Computers or accessories
  • Concrete blocks or steel poles

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 Allied Waste 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: April 16 and October 15, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Civic Center Parking Lot
  • Electronics Recycling Days: May 14 and September 24, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Civic Center Parking Lot
  • Household Hazardous Waste Day (Tox Away Day): September 10, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Roberts Stadium Parking Lot

Additional information about these programs is available in the Solid Waste District’s section of the City Website ( or by calling 436-7800.

Garbage crews will begin picking up “heavy trash” from Evansville residents later this month.

The collections will run from Sept. 14 to Oct. 16. The city considers heavy trash to consist of sofas, tables, chairs, mattresses, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, televisions, stereos, building materials and similar things.

For the collection, the city has divided the city into a number of areas. Crews will spend one day picking up heavy trash in each of the areas.

To see a map showing the collection schedule, go to HeavyTrash.

To be picked up, items must be put out before 6 a.m. on the collection day.

The heavy trash should be set in the same place where normal trash is collected. Building materials or debris must be placed in trash cans or boxes. The containers should be light enough to be lifted by two adults.

No concrete blocks or steel poles will be collected. Sections of fencing should be cut in half or to a smaller size.

The work crews will not pick up trash that can be set out for normal collections. Nor will they accept automobile parts, batteries, tires, computer equipment or hazardous substances. For more information, call Allied Waste at (812) 424-3345.
