EVANSVILLE, Ind.- Mayor Lloyd Winnecke has approved plans for the remove of tree debris related to the severe thunderstorm that impacted parts of the city’s North Side last week.

Starting Monday, May 19 through Friday, May 30, the Urban Forestry and Street Maintenance departments will be picking-up tree debris within the impact zone, which has been identified as north of the Lloyd Expressway to the city limits and between St. Joseph Avenue and Green River Road.

During this time residents are asked to call the Street Maintenance Department at 435-7088 or 435-7089 to request a pick-up at their specific location.

Pick-ups are for tree debris only.

Limbs and logs must be no longer than 8-feet-long, and tree roots and stumps will not be accepted. Tree debris must be placed near the curb without impeding the street or sidewalk. 

City employees will not enter private property to remove or retrieve storm debris.

Residential customers of the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility who are scheduled for heavy trash pickup May 19 through May 30 may place tree limbs up to 4-feet-long and 2-inches in diameter in the heavy trash pick-up area.

The limbs should be bundled, and the number of bundles that will be accepted is unlimited.

Residents utilizing the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility trash removal services may also place tree limbs up to 4-feet-long and 2-inches in diameter, and other yard waste, in the regular Trash Cart for pick-up by Republic Services during their regular weekly trash collection.

In addition, Republic will also empty and reload the Trash Cart one additional time for those items meeting the specified requirements. Residents should not use the Recycling Cart for tree debris.
