Special Pick Up Items

Special Pick Ups:

With the new routes and to improve efficiency, this service has been changed to "On-Demand".  This allows residents to contact the Department of Public Works when they have items (which are too large to put in the trash toter) to be picked up at any time and not worry about having missed the appropriate pick up time during the month.

ONLY after you have set your items out at the curb please call the Department of Public Works at 812-376-2508 to request a pickup. This prevents us from making excess trips for items not yet out.

Qualifying items for this service are:

  • 20 Bags/Boxes
  • 1 Piece of Furniture

NON-Qualifying items for this service are:

  • Carpeting
  • Lumber
  • Shingles
  • Concrete
  • Fencing
  • Any construction or remodeling debris
  • House Cleanouts

Please keep trash collection areas clean.  Collections will not be made in trailer parks, non-for-profit agencies, businesses, private streets or in alleys.
