2018 Heavy Trash Pickup Schedule - NEW GUIDELINES & DATES IMPLEMENTED


It’s time for Town of Edinburgh’s annual event to support our citizen’s efforts to keep our community clean by providing free pick up of big trash items. This commitment is expensive financially and by the required resources and man hours required to complete this task. We are proud to provide the valuable service for our residents. We ask everyone to please be courteous by following the guidelines provided herein.

The Town will conduct heavy trash removal July 16 through August 10.  This service is for EDINBURGH RESIDENTS ONLY; commercial and business locations will not be serviced.  Bringing trash into Town by non-residents is strictly prohibited, the Town reserves the right to charge any property owner for violations of this practice.

Residential properties located on the east side of the railroad tracks will be serviced ONE TIME ONLY during July 16 through July 27. 

Residential properties located on the west side of the railroad tracks will be serviced ONE TIME ONLY during July 30 through August 10.

Town WILL NOT pick up tires, chemicals, paint, petroleum products, batteries of any kind, construction or demolition material, computers, tvs or any type of electronics, air conditioning units, refrigerators or anything containing freon.

Small items or loose material must be placed in adequate bags or containers.  Containers will be hauled away as trash, so residents are advised not to use their good trash receptacles.  Also, crews will not rake around the area where the trash was located. 

Heavy trash items should be placed at the curb or edge of the street no sooner than 72 hours, and no later than 7:30 a.m. on the starting day of pick-up for the side of town being serviced that week.

If trash items are set out anytime other than the scheduled heavy trash removal, there will be a minimum charge of $100 if the town has to remove it.

The Edinburgh transfer station, located at the sewage treatment plant, is open daily for trash disposal.  There is a nominal charge based on volume of trash.  Fees and hours of service may be obtained by calling 812-526-3530.
