Mayor Lloyd Winnecke has directed the Evansville Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency and the departments of Transportation & Services and Urban Forestry to develop plans for the removal of tree-debris for homeowners affected by Friday’s severe thunderstorm. Details will be announced in the coming days.

Mayor Winnecke said the plans will involve curbside pick-up of tree-debris only. Building materials such as wood, bricks and glass will not be picked-up. Leaves and tree limbs must be placed on private property near the curb, but not within the city right-of-way on public streets or sidewalks. City employees will not enter private property to remove or retrieve storm debris.

Residential customers of the Evansville Water & Sewer Utility may also put leaves, tree limbs up to 4-feet-long and 2-inchs in diameter, and other yard waste in the Trash and Yard Waste Cart only for pick-up by Republic Service during the regular weekly trash collection. Do not use the Recycling Cart for tree debris.


  1. Have a plan concerning that, Its being done somewhere else right now and really working well as planned going in. A benefit forward for increased timing and productivity with recovery areas.

    Its a climate change action we’ve expected with the voracities created by increased weather events horizons. Something one of our team members once discussed with Mr.Sherman Greer during a spotters conference. He was impressed we thought, however we never did see it implemented there? Too bad, we can’t work with him this helps people get out from under the normal stuff in a very advanced and positive time frame.
    Something We’ve learned while prepping sites for storm relative events data collection points, Its more than just data its the human side recovery, as well as, “sight for sites*.”

    “Ædificate climate*”
