Heavy Trash Pickup Starts Today
Time to get rid of that old refrigerator and couch set that has just been taking up space in your garage, because Heavy Trash pickup for Fall 2019 has begun! According to the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility website, the heavy trash contractor will not pick up trash that would normally be picked up as part of the regular weekly collection.
Heavy trash, or bulky trash, includes but is not limited to the following items: furniture, such as sofas, tables, chairs, mattresses and box springs; appliances, including stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, clothes dryers and water heaters; and building materials and construction debris. No electronics, such as televisions, stereos, or computers and accessories will be picked up!
No more than two of each type of appliance will be collected per address. Carpet must be rolled in sections no longer than 4 feet and no bigger than 2 feet in diameter. Loose building materials and construction debris must be placed in a container. Nails need to be removed. These containers should be no heavier than can reasonably be lifted by two average adults. Containers should be strong enough to not break apart while being lifted even if they are wet. Automobile parts, automotive or household batteries, tires, computer equipment or hazardous materials will not be picked up. Privacy fence sections must be cut in half or to a smaller manageable size. No concrete blocks, bricks or steel poles are permitted.
Heavy trash should be placed wherever your trash is normally collected from the home, whether at the curb or in the alley. All heavy trash items must be set out before 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
