Special Storm Debris Program
Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel, the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility and Allied Waste announce plans to help residents dispose of large debris that fell from trees during Sunday’s wind storm. From Monday, September 22nd through Monday October 6th, Allied Waste will conduct a special storm debris curbside collection program.
“The City has been busy removing trees that have fallen on city streets and sidewalks and the Parks Department has a great deal of debris to clean up within the parks system,” said Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel. “We also realized that people had a lot of larger tree limbs on their own property and decided there needed to be a way to help them dispose of that debris.”
In order to accomplish this special storm debris program, the Heavy Trash Pick Up that is currently underway will stop on Friday, September 19th, and be delayed for two weeks. Instead, Allied will follow the grid pattern used for Heavy Trash Pick Up to collect storm debris. Pick up will start on the east side and work its way west (please see attached map). Allied will collect storm debris from two grids each day, starting with grids 1 and 2 on Monday, 3 and 4 on Tuesday, etc. The Heavy Trash Pick Up will not occur on Saturdays or Sundays.
Allied will pick up larger pieces of debris that are no longer than four feet long and six inches in diameter. Yard waste that would normally be picked up each Friday may be included in this special debris pick up, however regular yard waste pick up will continue. Storm debris must be placed curbside and does not need to be in any specific container, but it should be stacked to minimize safety hazards. The storm debris should be separate from other waste.
Heavy Trash Pick Up will resume after all of the storm debris is collected. If pick up has to be delayed further, we will notify the media.
