New WL Trash Ordinance

Just a reminder that the new WL trash ordinance  went into effect on 7/1/2013.City of West Lafayette

Here are a few important features of the new trash ordinance.

  • The new monthly trash fee/rate is  $16.00.  This includes weekly, curbside pickup of trash, recycle and yard waste.  The drop off recycle center at 705  S. River Road is always open.
  • Trash cans  must have a tight fitting lid when placed at the curbside.  Trash containers must be removed from curbside by 11PM on the day of pickup.
  • Grass clippings will no longer be picked up by the street dept. This practice  is recommended by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management . A handout discussing this practice is available.

The Master Gardener Association of Tippecanoe County will hold a composting educational session at the Tippecanoe county Extension Center on 9/14/2013 from 9AM-12 noon.  Recommendations for dealing with grass clippings will be discussed at this workshop.
