If you're doing some spring cleaning, the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility is helping us out.

Starting next March 31 through May 30, it will collect larger items like furniture and some appliances.
Just leave them at the curb.

The only things it won't take are hazardous materials, like car parts, tires and computers.

Below is a full list of what the city will and won't accept.

Items that will be collected include:


  • Carpet rolled in sections no longer than 4 ft. and no wider than 2 ft.
  • Sofas, tables, chairs, mattresses, box springs, etc.
  • Stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, etc.
  • Limit two of each type of appliance per household
  • Televisions, stereos, etc.
  • Building materials/construction debris must be in trash cans, boxes, etc.  and of such size and weight that they can be reasonably lifted by two average adults
  • Containers must be strong enough that they do not break apart while being lifted even if they are wet
  • Privacy fence sections must be cut in half or smaller manageable size

Items that will NOT be collected include:


  • Any trash that Allied Waste would pick up as part of its regular residential waste collection contract
  • Automobile parts
  • Batteries
  • Tires
  • Hazardous materials
  • Computers or accessories
  • Concrete blocks, bricks or steel poles
