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.

Mayors Traveling City Hall

January 5, 2024

Mayor Stephanie Terry will reconvene the city’s Traveling City Hall tradition next month.

The first Traveling City Hall of the Terry administration will be held in partnership with United Neighborhoods of Evansville on Thursday, February 22, at 5:30 p.m. in the C.K. Newsome Community Center. It will precede the regular United Neighborhoods of Evansville meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m., where Mayor Terry also will speak.

“One of the best parts of running for mayor was having the opportunity to hear directly from the people of Evansville – to hear their concerns, answer their questions, and to just listen to what they have to say about our city,” Mayor Terry said. “The Traveling City Hall is an opportunity for me and the department heads from across the city to continue not only doing that, but to take their concerns back to the office the next day and do what we can to address them in real time.”

Mayor Terry’s administration will host quarterly Traveling City Hall meetings throughout 2024, with each being held in a different part of the city, in conjunction with different community partners.

“United Neighborhoods of Evansville is excited to partner with Mayor Terry’s administration for the first of her Traveling City Hall programs,” said Joe Ballard, United Neighborhoods of Evansville operations manager. “This kind of direct dialogue between citizens and city officials is critical to a strong, thriving Evansville, and we’re proud to be part of making that happen.”

Future Traveling City Hall meetings will be held in May, August, and November 2024. The dates, locations, and community partners associated with those events will be announced at the February 22 event.
