Waste Collection Services

Pick Up Schedule 

Special Notice:

To reduce the risk of exposure to employees and residents alike, the Public Works department will need all residents to place their trash and recyclable material on the driveway beginning Monday, April 6. This will not only keep the employees from entering garages and closets, but also lessen the likelihood of your collectibles being missed if your normal collection route driver is absent.

Waste collection routes are scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Holidays, falling on a regularly scheduled day, will be rescheduled for Monday. You will be given a notice of change by your route driver and a notice will appear in the Indian Hill Bulletin. If your collection was missed due to a blocked drive or late set out, you may submit an online service request or call (513) 831-3712. 

Below is a list of guidelines that should be followed for proper waste disposal:

  • Trash should be bagged and placed in an approved container. Approved containers are either 32 gallon cans weighing less than 50 pounds when full or large ‘toters’ purchased from the Public Works Department.
  • Only ordinary household waste will be accepted on regular collection days. No paints, batteries, yard waste, tires, chemicals, or construction trash of any kind. For information on these items, call the Public Works Department at (513) 831-3712.
  • Large quantities of trash and bulk items such as furniture, boxes and appliances will be handled as a Special Pickup.
  • It is your responsibility to keep trash easily accessible for collection personnel. Collections cannot be made if driveways are blocked or access to your cans is impeded. If you anticipate a problem, please set your trash out in an area free of obstructions.
  • If you choose to keep the trash in your garage, please keep the area surrounding your trash accessable and free of any obstructions that may prove hazardous to collection personnel. Also, be sure to keep items not intended to be thrown away a safe distance from your trash cans so that they are not mistakenly taken as trash.
  • Due to the limited hauling capacity of our collection vehicles, we ask that all large cardboard boxes be broken down before placing them out for disposal. If you wish to recycle the cardboard, please click here. Please do not use boxes to hold trash (they break easily especially when wet. Styrofoam peanuts used as packing material should be placed in a separate sealed bag to avoid spillage.
  • All medical waste should be properly identified before placing out for disposal. Syringes must be placed in Sharps containers or other non-penetrable containers before discarding. Should you have any questions regarding medical waste, please contact the Public Works Department.
  • Because of danger to collection personnel, as well as a risk of injury to family pets, dogs should be confined on regularly scheduled collection days. Please keep in mind that invisible fencing does not necessarily keep dogs from being at risk.
  • If a regularly scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, check for a notice in the Indian Hill Bulletin for rescheduling information or view the holiday schedule to the right. Notices will also be passed out by collection personnel.

Carpet must be cut into lengths no longer than 6 feet and weigh no more than 50 pounds. Please note, flooring installers do provide removal services. Large quantities of moving boxes should be broken down and stacked for easy removal. In order for the public works to accept cans of paint, simply add floor dry or cat litter material to absorb the paint and dry it out (leave lids off). After the paint had solidified, we can properly dispose of it.
