​The Department of Public Works strives to keep our city clean...and that includes your neighborhood. For the residents of Indianapolis, DPW staff and contractors work to maintain aesthetic appearances and improve quality of life by coordinating trash pick-up, leaf collection, recycling, dead animal pick-up, and graffiti removal, just to name a few.

DPW is also charged with keeping water clean and flowing to your home. While DPW manages the city's two wastewater treatment plants and sewage collection system, the city also conducts a program to improve water quality in Indianapolis neighborhoods.
