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.
