Residential Recycling Collections Suspended Extra Week


(Evansville, IN) – The City’s residential recycling program will be suspended for an additional week. Pumps needed to operate the baling equipment at Tri-State Resource Recovery will not arrive until after Labor Day.

The baling machine malfunctioned and efforts to secure replacement pumps before the Labor Day weekend have been unsuccessful. Residential recycling collections for week B were suspended this week. The delay in receiving the pumps makes it necessary to suspend recycling collections next week, for week A, through September 9.

Recycling collections are expected to resume for week B on Monday, September 12. Recycling collections for week A will resume on Monday, September 19.

Should residents need an alternative to holding their recyclables until the next scheduled collection day, residents of the City of Evansville may deposit their recyclables at the Laubscher Meadows Convenience Center from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday where they will be recycled.
