Residential Trash and Yard Waste

Your trash container and recycling carts assigned to the address of your house and are managed by Republic Services of Evansville.

Trash & Recycling pickup times may change occasionally.  To ensure pickup at your location, please have your cart(s) at the curb or other assigned pickup location, no later than 6 a.m. on the scheduled pickup day.

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.

Trash services include:

  • Standardized 96-gallon cart for trash and yard waste (a 48-gallon cart is available upon request)
  • Weekly pick-up
  • Automated curb and alley pick-up
  • Spring Yard Waste Service (the first four full weeks in April)
  • Special unlimited leaf collection in fall (an eight-week period from mid-October to mid-December)
  • Christmas tree pick-up (with normal trash)

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.

Evansville uses 96-gallon (or optional 48-gallon) carts for automated curbside and alley pick-up. Customers should use one cart for trash and yard waste and one cart (with green lid) for recycling. If you require additional service for trash or recycling, you may contact Republic Service's Customer Service desk at (812) 424-3345. A one-time service fee of $100 will be charged per request, which entitles you to additional service at no additional monthly cost. The City of Evansville will supply an additional Cart with each request. Please note that only City of Evansville-supplied carts will be emptied.
