What about chemicals and hazardous waste?

What about yard waste?

The city will pick up yard waste the first full work week of each month from April through October.  Please cut brush to 6 foot lengths and place on the terrace parallel to the curb.  Yard waste (leaves, clippings, etc) must be bagged or in containers.  Materials placed in the street have a tendency to clog stormwater drainage and cause local flooding; please keep brush and yard waste on the terrace.


Annual Fall leaf pick-up begins in late October and runs until Thanksgiving, weather permitting. Place leaf-piles in the street adjacent to the gutter, not on the terraces.

You may also drop off yard waste at the city’s drop-off site at 465 Water Street. This site is open to Evansville residents for yard waste only.  Weather permitting the site is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Wednesday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. starting April 13th 2016 until the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Wednesday evening drop off may close sooner than Thanksgiving due to daylight savings and limited daylight. 

What is allowed for yard waste recycling?

The following items not allowed for yard waste recycling are:

  • No dimensional lumber


  • Baskets

  • Dirt

  • Garbage waste
