(a 48-gallon cart is available upon request)
- Weekly pick-up
- Automated curb and alley pick-up
- Special unlimited leaves collection in fall
Leaves must be in biodegradable bags or loose in containers

Your trash container and recycling carts assigned to the address of your house and are managed by Republic Services of Evansville. On your scheduled collection day, please have your cart placed for pick-up before 6 a.m. You will be notified if there’s a change to your pick-up location.
Yard waste, like grass and shrub clippings and tree limbs, should be placed in your 96-gallon cart with your trash. Never place trash or yard waste in your designated recycling cart. All of your trash and yard waste must be contained in your cart, except during designated times.
Republic Services can also take away your Christmas tree. Pick-up will occur during the first full week of January on the same day as your trash collection.
