Yard Waste

The Town of Edinburgh is working hard to keep our streets and neighborhoods clean.  As a service to the community, the Town provides the following services:


  • Grass clippings, yard waste, tree limbs and brush is picked up Mondays.  Yard waste and grass clippings MUST BE placed in bags weighing no more than 25 pounds. DO NOT BLOW GRASS CLIPPINGS INTO THE STREET as this causes storm drains to become clogged. Yard waste consists of brush, leaves, flowers, shrubs and grass.  Articles other than yard waste must be placed with regular garbage.  Bags containing yard waste and garbage together WILL NOT be picked up.


  • Tree limbs and brush must be placed in a pile at the edge of your property away from the storm drains.  The Town WILL NOT pick up tree trimmings from any residence that has hired a contractor to do the work.  Contractors are responsible for the removal of such items.  If items are left for the Town to remove, homeowners will be charged an hourly fee for labor and equipment.


  • During the last two weeks of July, the Town conducts heavy trash pick-up.  Residents are asked to place small items or loose material in adequate bags or containers.  Containers will be hauled away as trash, so residents are advised not to use their good trash receptacles.  All items should be placed near the curb or street without causing any type of obstruction.  Crews will remove all items (except for those listed below), however, based on the type of trash to be removed, crews may need to make more than one stop using a different truck for certain items.  Crews will not rake around the area where the trash was located.  The following items WILL NOT be picked up:                                                                                                                                                                           
    • Tires
    • Chemicals
    • Paint
    • Petroleum products
    • Batteries of any kind
    • Duplicate appliances per household
    • Items from construction or demolition


  • The Town offers dump truck rental to residents for a fee.  The dump truck is delivered to the address between the hours of 4:00 – 4:30 p.m. and picked up by 8:00 a.m. the following workday.  Residents wanting to use this service must contact the Utility Office at 812-526-3514 for more information.


  • The Edinburgh transfer station, located at the sewage treatment plant, is available every day for trash disposal.  Residents may dispose of unwanted items at the transfer station for a fee based on the volume of trash.  Fees may be obtained by calling 812-526-3530.


The Town is asking that all residents keep their properties free of trash, broken down cars, tires, and any other toxic materials.  Residents and/or homeowners will receive a letter or door hanger for any trash items left out except during heavy trash pick-up.  We ask that you take a proactive approach towards keeping our community clean.  If you know your property is one in need of attention and have a plan for cleaning the property, please contact our office at 812-526-3513.


DO NOT USE “Rumpke” cans for any of the above services.  These cans are to be used for weekly household garbage only.
