(EVANSVILLE, IN) –– The Evansville Water & Sewer Utility announces that the Annual Fall Leaf Pick-up will begin Monday, October 26, and will run through Friday, December 19 for a period of eight (8) weeks. This annual 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 bags should be placed at the pickup location before 6 a.m. on the normal days of collection. These bags should only be placed at the pickup location on your normal day of trash collection.
Leaves not in Bio-Degradable bags that do not meet these requirements will not be picked up. Residence with leaves not in the Bio-Degradable Bags will be notified to re-bag their leaves in Bio-Degradable bags and they will be picked up on the following week. If a customer has put their Leaves out according to the requirements above yet feels they were missed, they can call Republic Services at 424-3345 within two days to report a possible missed pick-up.
Complete pick-up details will be made available through Republic Services.
