Clark Miles, Streets and Sanitation Commissioner
The Streets and Sanitation Department is responsible for street maintenance single-family residential sanitation collection within the City of Jeffersonville. The department operates under Indiana Codes 36-9-2 and 36-9-30 and City Council ordinance 2009-OR-031.
The Clark County Solid Waste Management District — and NOT the Streets and Sanitation Department — is responsible for household hazardous waste disposal and curbside recycling within the City of Jeffersonville
Please be advised that in a snow event, priority is main roads and routes to hospital, police and fire, then secondary streets, followed by subdivisions. Also note that once we get into subdivions and residential areas, it is hard to plow the streets with cars in the way. If at all possible cars should not be parked on the street in order for us to do a good job.

Annexation Area B Pickup Days
The Streets and Sanitation department have published a list of sanitation and yard waste pickup days in Annexation Area B, which includes the Oak Park Conservancy District and some nearby neighborhoods.
Because the day following a holiday is a double trash day, it MAY delay your yard waste and chipper day. Please call the office if you have questions regarding this matter.
Trash Pickup & Trash Cans
Residential trash is picked up weekly. Trash should be at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on your neighborhood’s assigned pickup day. Trash cans must be on wheels, have hinged lids and be capable of being picked up mechanically. The Streets and Sanitation Department sells this type of can for $75 each, which is the city’s cost to purchase the cans from the manufacturer. Similar cans are also available for purchase from private-sector retailers. Email Stephanie to order a new trash receptacle.
REMINDER: The Jeffersonville Street Department does not pick up bagged trash that is not contained in an approved receptacle. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, however safety precautions prohibit personnel from manually picking up bagged articles due to the potential risk of contamination or infection from sharps such as hypodermic needles that may have been improperly disposed of. Please ensure that all trash is placed in an approved receptacle.
To have an assembled can delivered to you, mail your contact information and a check for $75 payable to the Jeffersonville Streets and Sanitation Department to 2003 Renfroe Way, Jeffersonville, IN 47130.
The Streets and Sanitation recommends marking your can so that it is easily identifiable — such as painting your address or last name on the can’s exterior — in the event that

Large Amounts of Trash
The Streets and Sanitation Department reserves the right to assess a fee for special pickups of large amounts of trash, such as from the cleaning out of a house, garage or storage unit. A supervisor will assess the debris and provide a price based on the labor and equipment that will be needed to complete the cleanup.
Appliances, Electronics and Metal Goods
Appliances, electronics and metal goods are picked up each Friday, except city holidays. They should be placed at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on the pickup day. Please call 812-285-6455 in advance to notify the department that you have appliances, electronics or metal goods in need of pickup.
Please note that the State of Indiana prohibits the disposal of electronics in landfills. Due to this restriction, the City of Jeffersonville can only pick up electronics such as computers and televisions via these Friday pickups, which results in them being disposed on in accordance with the law.
The Streets and Sanitation Department will pick up household furniture, generally on the same day regular garbage is picked up. Please call 812-285-6455 in advance of the pickup day to notify the department that you have furniture that needs to be picked up.
The Streets and Sanitation Department can accept paint IF it is dried and hardened. Paint can be allowed to dry naturally, or cat litter or sand can be used to assist in the drying process. Lids should be left off the paint container so that the Streets and Sanitation worker can quickly determine if the paint is dry. The Streets and Sanitation Department cannot accept wet paint for disposal.
Chemicals/Household Hazardous Wastes
The Streets and Sanitation Department does not dispose of chemicals or household hazardous wastes. Please contact the Clark County Solid Waste Management District (812-256-7942) for more information about the proper disposal of chemicals and household hazardous wastes.
Yard waste will be picked up on your regular trash pickup day with the exception of Area B Annexation and the area East of Vissing Park Road. Area B yard waste and chipper truck day is Monday. Area East of Vissing Park Road, yard waste is picked up on Friday and the chipper truck comes on Tuesday. Yard waste should be in containers clearly marked “yard waste”. These containers can include trash cans, cardboard boxes and paper yard waste bags. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be picked up.
Trash, dirt and rocks should not be mixed with yard waste.
It is unlawful to blow or sweep yard waste into streets or drainage structures. When it rains, yard wastes that are disposed of in this manner can clog drainage structures and increase the risk of flooding. The City of Jeffersonville reserves the right to issue citations when yard wastes are disposed of in this manner.
Limbs are generally picked up on the same day as trash, however there are times — due to equipment maintenance or heavy workloads — that the chipper truck is behind schedule. Limbs should be placed at the curb — but not blocking drainage structures — neatly stacked and with the cut end facing the street. If you have hired a contractor to trim or cut down trees, the contractor is responsible for the removal of limbs and logs. A service fee of $75.00 will be assessed to the resident for greater than a 4-yard dumpster load of limbs, as a claw-truck will be required for pickup. Please call ahead to notify Street Department personnel if you require this service to ensure that your waste is picked up.
