In Marion County, there are two types of trash collection: automated pick-up (when the truck picks up your can with a mechanical arm) or hand collection (when a crew member manually picks up your can to empty it into the truck).
Trash is collected five days a week between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. On your collection day, be sure to place your trash at the curb or in the alley before 7 a.m. to ensure proper pickup.
If you have questions or concerns about your weekly trash or heavy trash collection, please contact the Mayor's Action Center online or call (317) 327-4622.
If legally unacceptable items are left for pickup, an informational tag will notify you how you can meet the pickup requirements.
