2018 Whitestown Trash Pick-Up Information Released
If you're in the Whitestown area and have a bunch of things you're looking to great rid of, there are two great solutions: 1) If it's useful things that could benefit someone else, sign up for a booth at our World's Largest Yard Sale. 2) If it's things that you believe are straight garbage, participate in the Whitestown Trash Pickup!
For two weekends only, June 4th through June 8th and June 11th through June 15th, there will be a variety of items to be collected for disposal. They need to be separated into piles based on what it is.
There is only one stop per household, so be sure to get on top of putting your stuff outside by the Monday morning of your chosen week. It is advised NOT to put your items on the street any sooner than one week prior to scheduled pick up. Once the trash pick up is completed, the green waste will then be collected.
