Spring Heavy Trash Pick-Up

Spring Heavy Trash Pick-Up Begins Monday, March 26

The Evansville Water & Sewer Utility announces that Heavy Trash Pick-up will begin Monday, March 26, and is scheduled to run through Friday, June 1, 2018. 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.

The collection schedule and area maps are available on the City’s GIS website – www.evansvillegis.com – by clicking “Heavy Trash Pickup Dates” on the right. (To better see the streets, visit the map at www.evansvillegis.com/trash.)

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 6:00 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
– Stereos, radios etc.
– NO computers or accessories
– NO televisions
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, bricks or steel poles

Items that will NOT be collected include:

    • Any trash that Republic Service would pick up as part of its regular residential waste collection contract
    • Automobile parts
    • Batteries
    • Tires
    • Televisions
    • Hazardous materials
    • Computers or accessories
    • Concrete blocks, bricks 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 Republic Service at (812) 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 812-436-7800.

UNOE General Meeting – February 2018

Join us for our February General Meeting on
Thurs., Feb. 22 – 6:30pm
at the C.K. Newsome Center.
Our guest speaker will be Meg Connolly, with the League of Women Voters of Southwestern Indiana, as she focuses on efforts to curb gerrymandering and to promote redistricting reform in Indiana.

– Every 10 years, following the census, the constitution says states are to look at changes in population distribution and, if necessary, redraw legislative districts for US Representatives. States also look at district lines for state legislators. The next census is in 2020.

– Since we have been drawing lines for legislative districts, parties (or groups drawing the lines) have tried to do so to maximize their own influence on the legislature. This is known as gerrymandering.

– During the 2018 Indiana Legislative Session there will be discussion of Redistricting and a new Senate Bill: SB 136. Be an informed constituent.

Join us at the General Meeting in February!

UNOE ANNUAL ELECTION OF OFFICERS

Nominations are open until the time of voting during the General Meeting. If you have someone from your neighborhood to nominate as an Officer with the Board of Directors of UNOE, contact the office staff at office@unoevansville.org or 812-428-4243.

GUEST SPEAKER


Mike Labitzke, the Deputy Director Utilities, with the City’s Program Management Office. Mike will be sharing information about the 2018 Projects with the Water Replacement Program for the City-wide Distribution System.

Refresh Evansville is a long-term strategy to replace aging water mains and supporting infrastructure.

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility maintains 1,000 miles of water lines within the system, of which 600 miles are cast-iron pipes with an average age of over 90 years. These are now at or past their life expectancy.

Refresh Evansville will take decades to complete, but these ongoing annual improvements will ensure that our children and future generations will continue to enjoy safe, clean drinking water.
