Yard Waste

 

The City of Evansville provides two options to dispose of personal yard waste. They include, Yard Waste Curbside Collection and the Yard Waste Drop Site. 

 

Curbside Collection Services - POSTPONED 

Collection of branches, brush and yard waste debris is scheduled from April to October, on the first (1st) full work week of the month.  All grass clipping and small yard waste must be placed in a paper bag or a container that can be emptied and placed back onto the parking area.  No plastic bags. 

Yard waste should not be raked or blown into the street.  Please be kind and blow your lawn clippings into your yard for natural decomposing.  When the lawn clippings clump together they create major clogs in the stormwater drainage system which can contribute to flash flooding and standing water in the streets.  

 

Yard Waste Drop Site / E-Recycling Dumpster

Opened for the Season starting Saturday, April 4th 2020

Hours

Wednesdays 5:00pm -7:00pm   

Saturdays 9:30am - 2:30pm  

At this site you can dispose of grass clippings, leaves, branches and general yard waste. Location is at 465 Water Street (next to the Fire Station).
