EWSU Spring Yard Waste Collection

Spring Yard Waste Service Collections set for April 1-26

(EVANSVILLE, IN) – Spring is almost here, and some homeowners are beginning to spruce up their yards. To accommodate the extra yard waste, Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) offers the annual Spring Yard Waste Service to city residential customers. Starting Monday, April 1, through Friday, April 26, city residential customers can place unlimited bags of grass clippings, hedge and tree trimmings, garden plants and other yard waste curbside next to their trash cart for pickup on their scheduled collection day.

How it Works

  • Republic Services, the contractor for the City’s trash and recycling services, will pick up unlimited bags, containers, or bundles of yard waste on the day of your regular trash collection.
  • Yard waste must be properly contained in plastic bags or tied in bundles no more than 4 feet long and 2 feet in diameter weighing less than 50 pounds, or loose in containers weighing less than 50 pounds.
  • Yard waste must be placed next to your City-issued trash cart.
  • No special bags are required. The yard waste will be taken to the landfill.

What is Allowed

  • Spring Yard Waste Service is for organic yard waste like leaves, grass clippings, hedge and tree trimmings, garden plants and garden trimmings.

Who is Eligible

  • Spring Yard Waste Service is available to City residents who pay for trash service with their EWSU water and sewer bill. Apartment complexes, mobile home communities, businesses, commercial customers and County residents are not eligible.

Republic Services will accept extra yard waste placed curbside next to the City-issued trash cart only during the annual four-week Spring Yard Waste Service period, at no extra cost. Yard waste placed inside the City trash cart is accepted throughout the year.
