Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Leaf Pickup Services in Evansville, IN
There is no doubt that autumn leaves are a thing of beauty, and one of the best parts of the season. There is also no doubt that fallen leaves are a pain in the butt for homeowners (like me) who have to pick them up. I hated doing it as a kid and I still hate it as a grown-up. At least I don't have to worry about what to do with the leaves once they're all picked up. I'll just let the city come and pick them up.
The Evansville Water & Sewer Utility has announced dates for its annual Fall Leaf Pickup service. This year it will begin on Monday, October 31, and will run through Friday, December 9.
Can I Use This Service?
The leaf pickup program is available to Evansville residents who pay for trash and recycling service with their monthly Evansville Water and Sewer Utility bill. Unfortunately, you are NOT eligible for leaf pickup service if you live in an apartment complex or mobile home community. Business and commercial customers are also not eligible.
What Do I Do With My Leaves?
- You must put your leaves in biodegradable plastic or paper leaf bags or in containers.
- Place those bangs and/or containers near your regular trash and recycling carts.
- Your leaves need to be at the pickup location before 6am on your normal trash pickup day.
If your leaves are not in the correct bag or container, they will not be picked up. You will be notified, though, and you'll have the chance to put them in proper bags and they will be picked up the following week. You can call Republic Services at 812-424-3345 if you have any questions.
What About My Heavy Trash?
Heavy trash pickups will be put on hold during the Fall Leaf Collection Program. You can resume scheduling heavy trash pickups once the Leaf Collection Program ends on Monday, December 12.
